When creating the first user account, it will properly create its usergroup, and the user gets this set as their default group, but the installer also creates a group named "user", which as far as I know is not needed anymore for new installations.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the latest Tumbleweed installer ISO for x86_64
2. Do a basic installation
3. Let the system reboot itself when completed
The "users" group is to be found.
The "users" group is not to be found.

I was informed that recently you changed how you set up the system for usergroups. This bug is related to that change.
A relevant issue might be this one: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1196265
The system user "users" group is created by the corresponding RPM and sysusers.d config file and it is of course still required, even if not used by default on your system.
