Which exact permission enables baseline creation permission under Source control

Requirement: I want to enable "Baseline" creation permission for the role "Team Members"

Problem: While creating a Baseline user is getting the below exception message:
                 don't have the permission to Save stream [server]
                 following additional actions needed: Modify the stream components

Testing from my side:
If I will enable any one permission given below out of three under Source Control (Source control-> Modify-> Stream-> "Modify the Stream Components" ) then user is able to create a baseline.
1. Add the components to the stream
2. Remove components from the stream
3. Replace components in the steam

My use case: I don't want to allow user to add, remove or replace components in the Stream but the user should be allowed to create a baseline.

Is there any relationship between "Baseline creation" & "Modify the Stream Components" ?
Please consider, I am not the expert but learning and here with exception message can I say that there is some relationship.

I can't see the relationship between the two. What's the use case?

I can't find any of the objects you refer to in your question in the Administration UI. I can't find any relationship between even Save Component and baseline creation. Please see How should I ask a question in the Forum if I want to receive useful answers? and consider to improve your questions e.g. by actually looking up the UI you ask about.

There is only a permission to deliver a baseline and a permission to change the name and description. It seems to be impossible to prevent creating a baseline. It is only possible to prevent delivering it or to change the name/description once it is delivered..
You can uncheck and check all permissions by unfolding to the level where you want to grant/revoke permission and then select the action.
