You create the user ahead of time.  As long as the %pre script looks
like this, there won't be a problem:

  id foo &>/dev/null || \
    /usr/sbin/useradd -r -s /sbin/nologin -c FOO -d /usr/share/foo foo

I certainly can't think of such an environment where it doesn't make
*more* sense to either pre-create the user accounts with fixed
uids/gids or just use LDAP/NIS/whatever.
