This means you do not put them in /etc/skel but create your users at build 
time, right?

I do that in a couple of live system (with useradd -r system user to do not 
disturb default user creation) in a hook script, but I'll also chown the 
paths manually in the same live-helper chroot's hook.

If it is a single user and a the files to be copied do not requires much 
space, you will find easier to put them in /etc/skel as Chris suggested.
