If you untar the archive as root, the files will end up owned as user # 1000???

If you untar the archive as root, You will end with files owned by root.

On my Fedora Core system, the first standard user I created ended up with UID 1000. I think that's fairly standard. --~~~~

This is the standard linux behaviour. That is exactly the question. When you untar an archive as root, the files will end up owned by root and not by a normal user (the first one has 1000). Which means that "If you untar the archive as root ... will not end up owned as user # 1000".
