Rooting the Android OS that runs on your mobile is how you become the root user which is another way of saying having the control of the root user account. The person who has control of the root user account is in charge and gets to decide what is installed and what is uninstalled on the device. That is almost always talking about what apps are going to be installed and what apps are going to be taken away that might already be on the device.
It doesn’t matter if you have unlocked the bootloader and installed a custom recovery so you could then flash the SuperSU from the custom recovery image or if you got root access another way such as flashing a one-click rooting tool directly from the browser on the device or a flashing tool on the computer. They all lead to the same thing which is having control of the root user account and they all allow for the same thing which the installation of all the same apps that would not run before. These are called the root apps, and they can do many things.
