I think this Captain America is clearly prepared to believe in an organisation that shares his values and works for global peace and security. I think the ending of this film suggests that the MCU will not allow any such organisation to exist, or not for long, because it doesn't want Cap (or any of the other heroes) to be less than the ultimate authority in their own stories. A good and functional version of SHIELD would be subversive because it make superheroes a part of society; so SHIELD can never allowed to be good and functional.
Structurally, if you want to argue that we're being set up for some kind of story where Sam and Bucky pull Cap in different directions in the third film, I'd be inclined to agree, but I don't really think they're going to turn it into romance.
