Default Is Adam holier than Joseph (or Mary)

Joseph died and his body was buried. He was not assumed into heaven.
Adam and Eve died, and their bodies were buried; they were not assumed into heaven.

Does Eccl.49:19 "above every living creature is Adam" , assert or imply that Adam was holier than Joseph who was buried and even Our Lady who was assumed but was still, nontheless, a "living creature"

or did the claim only hold true at the time it was written and was not including any who came later?

"And above every soul, at the very beginning, was Adam."

My interpretation is that Adam was above other souls by being first.
Also, at the very beginning he was without sin, as was Eve. So at
that point in time, Adam and Eve were each holier than anyone with
original sin.
