Quick question:

Are you using nss_slurm?

    Permits passwd and group resolution for a job to be serviced by
    slurmstepd rather than requiring a lookup from a network based
    service. Seehttps://slurm.schedmd.com/nss_slurm.html
    <https://slurm.schedmd.com/nss_slurm.html>for more information.

That could explain it.
