Description Xin LI freebsd_committer 2020-11-16 06:01:18 UTC
Currently, for rc.d scripts, their <service>_group have no effect (unlike <service>_user) unless chroot is being used.  This is documented in the comments, and for most usage this doesn't really matter (because role accounts are generally configured with primary group set to the desired group), but it can cause confusion.

Creating a bug to track this.
