Previous versions of systemd used to create it, a mistake that has just
been corrected:

| systemd (239-12) unstable; urgency=high
|   [ Martin Pitt ]
|   * Fix wrong "nobody" group from sysusers.d.
|     Fix our make-sysusers-basic sysusers.d generator to special-case the
|     nobody group. "nobody" user and "nogroup" group both have the same ID
|     65534, which is the only special case for Debian's static users/groups.
|     So specify the gid explicitly, to avoid systemd-sysusers creating a
|     dynamic system group for "nobody".

So, nothing to worry about.
