how do you know that the system is in "first time setup" state ?

If gdm can't find a (local?) user account. [1] I'm not an expert on
this; might be better to ask on the gdm list.

and even if we are in that state , why gnome-initial-setup would
create local user account !?

If you don't create a user account in Anaconda, then gdm will launch
gnome-initial-setup and it will (force you?) to create a new user
account. It's added to wheel because the initial user should always have
full control over his machine.

I bet you don't want gnome-initial-setup on your computers at all; it's
safe to uninstall.
