Btw. this is just our arbitrary limit. The default value is 100, but it
can be modified via ipa config-mod --searchrecordslimit=INT. You can
also use --sizelimit and --timelimit parameters for most of *-find
commands to control the limits.

I tried:
ipa user-find --pkey-only --sizelimit=0

and it returned all 300 records in 5.4 seconds.
