Assuming you installed the agent package via one of the published packages, the process will be running as the cua user. However, in order for this plugin to communicate over netlink sockets it needs the agent process to be running as root (or some user with CAP_NET_ADMIN and CAP_NET_RAW). Be sure to ensure these permissions before running agent with this plugin included.
