Wrong.  Sysadmins have full control over the httpd.conf and the
php.ini files.  Any functions, classes, file extensions, execution
access, etc., that he/she feels unsafe may be disabled quite easily.

Web server security involving PHP is certainly not 'left to be
handled' only by the programmer.  The sysadmin has many facilities to
ensure a secure environment exists.
