The useradd and groupadd utilities were standardized in
POSIX 1387.3-1996 IEEE Standard for Information Technology-Portable
Operating System Interface (POSIX®) System-Part 3: User and Group
Account Administration

Its basically derived from the SVR4 useradd/usermod and groupadd/groupmod

Redhat has shipped these for a couple of releases.
