[opensuse-support] user disappeared

I've got an odd problem, that probably deserves a bug report, but I
don't know where to start looking for evidence.

I'm running openSUSE 15.0 "transactional server" on a vps. I had freenet
daemon installed, running as a dedicated "freenet" user.

What happened is that the "freenet" user suddenly disappeared. It's not
mentioned in /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow nor /etc/group. If I do "ls -l" in
/home/freenet, there are numbers instead of owner and group. Service
obviously fails to start.

I had a look at logs, but there's nothing alarming.

Do you have any clues, what could go wrong?

Recent logs for freenet service:

Systemd service file:
# /etc/systemd/system/freenet.service
Description=FreeNet Service
ExecStart=/home/freenet/Freenet/ start
ExecStop=/home/freenet/Freenet/ stop
