Preferences folder read-only error / third-party audio plugins error

When I launch Premiere 2021, it scans for audio plugins then tells me it can't load third-party audio plugins, suggesting it doesn't have access to the "Preferences folder" and that I need to make sure I have read-write access.

 

I do have read-write access for the User/.../Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST folder, but read-only for the ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST folder. But these exact permissions are how my other computer is set up and I never have this issue with Premiere on that machine. Are there other "preferences" folders I need to look at?

 

When I look at the audio plugin manager, it says all of the Apple AU plugins are not working and the button to enable them is grayed out.

 

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times. Anyone know what else to do? I'm running on MacOS Big Sur 11.4 and latest version of Premiere 2021.
