I can't find this change in the diff, nor indeed anything matching
/\<nl\>/. Are you sure it got made properly?

+.IP "\fB-o\fR"
+Used with \fI-r\fR option allow change user ID to non-unique value.

This isn't great English; perhaps try this instead:

"In conjunction with the \fI-r\fR option, allow changing the user ID to
a non-unique value".

Also, the -r option is not documented in usermod(8), so it doesn't seem
to make a lot of sense as it stands.
