Merging wikias

What happens when you "merge" wikis?

Though this question is a topic on the Help:Merging wikias page, and some good information is given on why wikia merges aren't a true merge, it doesn't really answer the question and go into detail about what actually happens. After reading the page, I understand the the url from the smaller wiki is redirected to the larger one. But what else actually happens? Are beurocrats from the originally wiki transferred over, etc. Or are these decisions left to the community? I'm looking for details like that.
