It is mentioned in /etc/nsswitch.conf:

passwd:     files sss
shadow:     files sss
group:      files sss
services:   files sss
netgroup:   files sss

Attached is the log, but I'm afraid it may not be very helpful.

Yes, with my system guile (2.0.11) it returns my full user record.

    scheme@(guile-user)> (getpw (getenv "USER"))
    $1 = #("rwurmus" "*" 12345 12345 "Wurmus, Ricardo" "/home/rwurmus" 

In Emacs (installed via Guix) the above error is shown, but (getenv
"HOME") returns my home dir and (getenv "USER") my user name, just as
they should.
