It is common when running in chroot to have root's group vector preserved when running as
your self.

For example

# Enter chroot
$ sudo chroot /myroot

# still root
$ whoami
root

# switch to user preserving root's group vector
$ sudo -u user -P -s

# root's groups
$ groups root
a b c

# user's real groups
$ groups user
d e f

# user's effective groups
$ groups
a b c d e f
