This is only for the group audio. You can add or delete groups later.
You can add or remove users from groups later.
Even if you shouldn't need a group audio it has no negative impact to
your system, if there is such a group and if there should or shouldn't
be users member of this group.

Btw. I don't think reinstalling and giving a different answer will
switch bag the settings. At least I don't wish to have a package that
will remove something I might have set up manually before.

Anyway. You should answer yes. Security limits, resp. a group for
security limits won't break functionality for your OS, even if you are
booted to a non-rt kernel.
