Hi,

Unfortunately, I don't think this is a bug in those particular packages, and is
just something that happens sometimes, somehow.
I've definitely encounted this error and not known where it came from in the
past too.

There is nothing special that those packages should need to do to maintain
users and groups, and the scripts that handle user and group creation are
generated by the ports system. You can see these scripts in the `+MANIFEST`
file if you manually extract a package. I'm unsure where the source for them
lives in the ports tree.

As you noted, the fix is just to bring the databases back into sync.

-David
