As remarked by Davor Rotim (drot) in  FS#40970  : after a fresh install, running `grpck` asks for some systemd-related groups to be added to /etc/gshadow.

This is because the shipped files are out of sync: /etc/group containins more groups than /etc/gshadow.
Also, the install script will only update /etc/gshadow when it adds a group which was not in /etc/group before, which in this case doesn't happen.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
- Do a fresh install
- Run: grpck
This task depends upon
