I agree. An attribute of a ('pwd' Python module) password database entry corresponds to the field of a line in a 'passwd' text file. So it makes sense that when the field is empty in the text file, the corresponding attribute be an empty string and never None if it is not an integer (FWIW Android does not have a 'passwd' file).

Changing the title of the issue.
