That's correct, the internal database does not have groups.

In my (humble!) opinion, if you have a lot of users to manage you should
either be using some plugin that lets you get users from an external
source (e.g. the rabbitmq-auth-backend-ldap or
rabbitmq-auth-backend-http plugins), which allow you to implement
groups, or you should be managing them using something like Puppet or
Chef, or rolling your own script that talks to mgmt so you can define
these things en masse.
That's what I'd do, anyway.
