These lines are added by authconfig on Fedora and RHEL systems. They are
not much useful (but harmless) unless there are additional network-based
authentication modules after them. There can be pam_ldap, pam_sss,
pam_krb5 etc. These provide authentication against network servers and
it is common requirement that the system accounts (uid<500) should not
be authenticated against the network servers.
