Thank you.  Now that you point it out, I remember that this thread is
where I first learned about fedora-domainname.service.  I see:

        You would also need to set NIS domain name, otherwise SUDO will
        not correctly recognize SUDO rules targeted on host groups,
        instead of hosts:

which explains when sudo would need the NIS domain name.  Since my sudo
rules address user groups I guess there is no requirement for NIS domain
name since they are working just fine:

        ipa sudorule-add            desktop-admins --desc "Desktop
        ipa sudorule-mod            desktop-admins --cmdcat all
        ipa sudorule-add-host       desktop-admins --hostgroups desktops
        ipa sudorule-add-option     desktop-admins --sudooption "!
        ipa sudorule-add-runasuser  desktop-admins --users root  
        ipa sudorule-add-runasgroup desktop-admins --groups root
        ipa sudorule-add-user       desktop-admins --groups
        ipa sudorule-add            server-admins  --desc "Server
        ipa sudorule-mod            server-admins  --cmdcat all
        ipa sudorule-add-host       server-admins  --hostgroups servers
        ipa sudorule-add-option     server-admins  --sudooption "!
        ipa sudorule-add-runasuser  server-admins  --users root  
        ipa sudorule-add-runasgroup server-admins  --groups root
        ipa sudorule-add-user       server-admins  --groups

However, I was really asking whether there had been a change in
sssd/sudo behavior as it was my recollection that my sudo rules did not
work at all in early IPA 3.n releases unless the NIS domain name was
