UserAuth is an external module written by an independent developer. You
could probably try to contact him directly.

There is no core PmWiki action "admin", I assume it is used by the
UserAuth module.

There are no PmWiki permissions "read_all" or "rss", again, your
question probably relates to the UserAuth recipe, and its author may be
better placed to answer than anyone else.

Yes, "clear" without the quotes should clear all passwords to a page.
You may also have defined passwords in a
Main/GroupAttributes?action=attr page, and you can clear them the same

In recent PmWiki versions (2.2.0+) there is also the page
SiteAdmin/AuthList listing all pages with some passwords.
