Create A user group with registered as parent
Select that group in 'Special' view/access level
In Global config permissions Allow Administrator Login and leave everything else Inherited
In Content >>> Article/Category/Featured Article >>> Options ... set 'Access Administration Interface' to 'Allowed'
Create a new category and set the permissions in that category for the new user group Allowed for Create, Delete, Edit, Edit State and Edit Own
Create a new user and put the user in the new user group
Login Admin as the new user
The new user should be able to Create, Delete, Edit, Edit State and Edit Own Articles in only the new category. They should not be able to Create more categories or Delete, Edit, Edit State and Edit Own for existing categories.
The new user can create new categories because the Create button appears in the Category tab as well as the Article tab.

Thanks for reporting this possible issue!
Did you forget to describe a few steps? Or are there other permission settings changed?
Added "In Content >>> Article/Category/Featured Article >>> Options ... set 'Access Administration Interface' to 'Allowed'" to the instructions
In addition to the user being able to create Categories (which they should not be able to do)
The user can create Articles and set to the specific Category(which is expected behaviour) but is unable to delete any Article they create (which they should be able to do)
But in Categories there is also a Create icon. Clicking it allows the creation of Categories with no parent. If Create should be allowed in the specific Category then the Trash can should also appear. But surely the Create, Delete, Edit, Edit State and Edit Own( in a category) should apply to only Articles for the Category.
Thanks for the clear instructions.
After following your steps I noticed the following:
I made a PR for the problem that the user was able to create level 0 categories.
Can someone else look at the problem with the trash icon? I don't know exactly if this is a real problem, or done with a reason. Also not sure where or how I can fix that.
