[ngw] strange file ownership

While updating to 8.0.2 hp3 (hold the applause, please) noticed the extracted files have odd owner and group.  Certain folders are "root/root", as expected.

Most have "local_user/users".   

install worked OK, apparently (as root).  And all appears to be working.   Properly.

Listing the tarball shows an owner of "build/users" for many files.  We have no local user "build".

I am just changing the extracted files to "root/root" for pretty listing sake and to mollify my sense of propriety. 

Is this another Duh/Doh moment?
