Lack of interest Bypass Moderation for User Groups

Didn't get any response on this in the support thread so I guess it falls under a feature request. There doesn't appear to be anyway to allow a user group to bypass the moderation queue for the RM unless they're given a moderator level privilege to moderate the queue itself. Based on what @Mike said in another post, this is by design.

There is no per content permission to bypass moderation. Assuming you've set a category to be moderated, moderation will be bypassed only if the user has the ability to moderate the content (which is a moderator-level permission).
It seems it was understood there was a need to allow users to bypass the queue without having a moderator level privilege for the gallery, so it would be good to have that for the RM as well since they're both official addons.

We're trying to enforce 'minimum requirement' style standards for posting in our RM and we'd like to let users who've consistently posted quality content to bypass the queue without implying that we expect them to manage the queue with our staff.

I don't know that this is in high demand from other customers, but considering this a very basic concept that's already been implemented elsewhere, it seems reasonable to expect this for the sake of consistency.
