We want it to be 755, so if they end up being 775, that's a bug.
It should be harmless because /bin is owned by root, and by default
only root is in the group root.
For the record, I've just used netinst iso for 8.4.0 and KVM to
install a new system, and yes, I can reproduce this. You don't have to
install anything at all, just the base system.

Help to debug this would be appreciated. Maybe we can fix it for
