Bug#758307: installation-reports: First user not added to the lpadmin group

The package changelog indeed does give the key:

user-setup (1.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Add first user to two additional groups: netdev and powerdev
    Note that this assumes that something creates these groups during
    the task installation, as hal does with powerdev. The first user is added
    to the groups in finish-install so the groups need not be static.
    Closes: #352713

In short, if packages that need some groups are installed *during
installation*, then the first created user will be added to these

Which brings the question: what package is in charge of creating "lpadmin"?
