With high probability, 32 hex chars that are the same can probably be considered 'wrong'.

Some details on how one could handle the different cases of valid/invalid UUIDs:

   libvirtd.conf                dmidecode                handling

        valid UUID          valid UUID      libvirtd.conf UUID overrides dmidecode's UUID
        invalid UUID        invalid UUID      generate a temporary one; new one after libvirtd restart
        valid UUID      invalid UUID      use valid UUID
      invalid UUID        valid UUID      use valid UUID
