Fixed In Version: augeas-1.4.0-6.el7_6.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, Augeas was not able to read the default /etc/sudoers file provided by more recent versions of the sudo utility. The sudoers lens of Augeas has been fixed to parse also the always_query_group_plugin option. As a result, Augeas now reads default /etc/sudoers as expected.

The option 'always_query_group_plugin' has been parsed correctly. So verified this bug.
