Motivation for this change

Fixes #75075.

To summarize the report in the aforementioned issue, at a glance,
it's a different default than what upstream polkit has. Apparently
for 8+ years polkit defaults admin identities as members of
the wheel group 0. This assumption would be appropriate on NixOS, where
every member of group 'wheel' is necessarily privileged.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

Sounds good for NixOS. And it’s not like the module can be used on Ubuntu.
