pg_dump doesn't do that; pg_dumpall does.  This is because pg_dump is
meant to dump only one database in an installation, while users and
groups span the whole installation.  So they should be dumped as part
of a whole-installation dump, ie, pg_dumpall.

BTW, please send list messages to pgsql-novice, not pgsql-novice-owner.
