Sticky Bits

On an executeable file owned as root, I ran as root chmod 4755. The executeable now has the sticky bit for user root. However, when I log in as a user and execute that file, that executable executes as the user not root. This is a compiled executeable. Is there a setting that disables sticky bits from functioning?

Is the filesystem mounted with the "nosuid" flag set? The command mount (on its own, no arguments) shows the optons set.
