Group - users, GID 100 - intenstion
 
What is the purpose and intent of the Group "users", GID #100?

Is this to be populated with all normal users?
I have such a purpose, but not sure whether to use Group "users" or
create a new Group (like "everyone") for that purpose. I do assume
that some files are created by the system with the Group "users" since
it is a standard Group.
I did notice if you do not have a User added to the Group Users,
then he does not have access automatically.

For some admin, yes.
Is this default for normal Debian: no

There is "nogroup" too :-)

There are other way to allow user to gain member of users. PAM.

Check and read
/usr/share/doc/base-passwd/users-and-groups.html
and pam_group(5).

dpkg -L libpam-modules|grep man
