I am personally not convinced this is a bug. As Rob mentioned, this is a
migration solution, not sync. So what likely happens is that you add new
memberships to already-migrated groups (i.e. member attribute in group object),
which are then not migrated as they are already present in the FreeIPA.

So if anything, I would call it an RFE, for allowing overwriting the
memberships for existing groups...
