 Why I don't need to supply the root password to shutdown the computer from
gnome?...
 I've been searching for any option related but didn't find any.


 Any idea?

do not use gdm, but any other desktop manager.
  
Who said I use GDM?
Anyway, IMHO it isn't related to the desktop manager I use, but the Desktop Environment.
When I shutdown from the desktop manager it asks me the password, but from GNOME it just shuts down.
