nsswitch.conf: files vs. db_enum interaction

Greetings, All!

I just noticed something that I think is an oddity. Or a possible improvement.
If you set your nsswitch.conf to, say;

passwd: db
db_enum: cache builtin local files

The accounts listed in /etc/passwd aren't looked up.
I understand that it's a documented behavior, but it looks... odd to me.

With best regards,
