FreeIPA does use standard UNIX UIDs and GIDs. By default, however, they're generated automatically behind the scenes so that the administrator doesn't need to manage them. FreeIPA does this so it can ensure that there are no duplicate IDs in the system, which is a common problem in unmanaged LDAP environments. On the various client machines, you can see that the users have UIDs and GIDs by performing 'getent passwd <username>'.
