Not sure I understand this, are you saying a user is getting the ID
'10000' and there is also a group with the ID '10000', or are you
saying that a group has the ID '10000' and a user also has a gidNumber
attribute with the value '10000' ?

Either of those is not a problem:

rowland at devstation:~/hash$ getent passwd rowland
rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/rowland:/bin/bash

If you mean something different, please explain better.
