As a test i ran the exact same command on my desktop and my joe ended up at 
10003 i double checked i had not configured  /etc/fedora/usermgmt/baseuid  
and it says 300  which is the default offset.  my user should have been 342 
based on how its supposed to work 

as a further test i ran 
fedora-useradd 40 -d /home/bloggs bloggs

that user got 10004 something is really wrong with it
