Primary group of new user is 'wheel'?

Hi, I noticed the primary group for the user account created during installation (GhostBSD 18.10) is set to 'wheel':

Code: Select all

uid=1002(ptlomholt) gid=0(wheel) groups=0(wheel),5(operator)
Is there a reason for not using the uid as gid and then associating 'wheel' via secondary group membership similar to how 'operator' is assigned?

See ... -448256796 for some background where this configuration is currently breaking one of the unit tests in libuv.

That configuration was done to make the first user have the wheel group as default group
