Scrum Master is a "management" position?

I saw this question somwhere and the answer was true while I thought it should have been false. Could someone tell me if this would be correct? Here's their explanation:

Scrum Master does not manage the Scrum Team or even the Development Team, but manages the Scrum process.

Scrum master is a management position ? True

This is because scrum master has responsibility to resolve the impediments of the team. Some of this needs management intervention. Although scrum master is not a "manager" , scrum master do have to influence the management to get issues resolved.

Very straight forward issue can be adding new team member.
