I observed a Java process running at root level through top command on my application server, will it lead to performance problems?

We were running a load test and simultaneously executed top command and observed that Java process (running at root level) was consuming 204℅ cpu, even though we ran just 10℅ of expected load on server.
Also one of my colleagues said that a Java process should not be running at root level as this leads to performance issues.
I tried searching the internet but could not find anything which says that Java process should not run at root level.
Note for experts :- please excuse me for my lack of knowledge, please do not download or block the question.
