On a D7 site, I created a Description field (using filtered text with ckeditor) and a Geolocation field using a Googlemap widget.
I attached them to a content type called Accommodation, and they behaved as I expected - ie, I got a rich text editor on Description, and a map on the Geolocation field, when logged in with any role that would allow me to edit a node of that content type.
I attached the same fields, with the same settings, to a Taxonomy, and found that I could only see the map and ckeditor if logged in as an administrator.
If I logged in with another role, the googlemap and rich text editor would not appear, although I was still able to create a taxonomy item, and they did appear on the same fields shown on a node create form - just not on the taxonomy item create form.
I have all taxonomy permissions turned on for authenticated users.
