Packages adding groups in %pre/post

I've noticed that in some situations, packages that add users/groups in
%pre/post can fail. What I most often see happening is while groupadd
or useradd is installed, and properly requested by Requires(pre) or
Requires(post) on shadow-utils, the /etc/group and /etc/passwd files
themselves aren't in place. These come from the setup package.
Should the shadow-utils package Require the setup package, or require it
in such a way that it is in place before anything that calls
shadow-utils? Should the packages that need to add users/groups not
only Requires(foo) on shadow-utils, but also setup?
