As most of these well-known SIDs, no.  They have to be created manually
as SYSTEM.  We could add them but it doesn't make much sense so far.

I don't think any of these accounts are actually member of any group.
It's just the way access tokens are created so it looks like SYSTEM
is member of admins.  I didn't look into an access token of a process
under any of the other well-known SIDs, though.
