Differences between my two Macs

I have two Macs one is a MacBookPro (M1) and the other is a Mac Mini (M1) which should be setup the same way with both, at the moment, running macOS 12.6 Monetery. When a program on the Mini gets updates (e.g. MacVim or BibDesk) there is never a password request from macOS however the same programs updating on the MacBookPro always ask for the admin password! Weird and confusing. I want both of them to do the same thing, which is not ask for the password. Can’t see anything in System Preferences that would affect this. Would be grateful for any help to bring conformity to my Macs.
