Ok, but useradd should chown them when the user is created at runtime. Do you 
see wrong uid in the RUNNING system?

If this is the case then it is a live-initramfs related bug.

Anyway, lh_chroot_local-includes should not change permissions IMHO, you 
should change them with a l-h's hook and not for your use case.
