IRM • Microsoft 365 Family

Good morning, I am needing to give company users the ability to run macros even though I set a file with IRM permissions to "Extremely Confidential / All Employees", but I am not able to. I notice that for that I must give them Total Control permissions, but this makes no sense, because by giving them that permission they have the ability to get IRM permissions.
Please, could you tell me how to restrict access to the use only of employees to give them permission to run the macros and in turn cannot have permissions to modify the IRM configuration? Greetings,
