No, they should not.  The system groups referenced by udev should instead

However, I wonder if Marco isn't arguing on the basis of old information;
lookups for LDAP at boot time should not result in long timeouts, and it's a
bug in nss_ldap/libldap if they do - a bug which I thought had been
addressed by now.
