When a user has been assigned to a product license for Finance and Operations, a user will be automatically created the first time he/she logs in. This is as described in the documentation:
"For customers who are on one of the new license types that were added in October 2019, users must be associated with a license. Users who are associated with a license are automatically added as system users who have no roles the first time that they sign in."

The user ID has a pattern like '$BC8A'. It is a dollar sign with 4 hexadecimal values; which is meaningless and not user friendly when user IDs are presented on forms.
It would be better to have a meaningful user ID. Probably allow a configuration or just take the local-part of an e-mail address. In case of chrisg@contoso.com, the user ID can then be 'chrisg'.

I agree with the approach to have a meaningful user ID in case of automatic creation of user account in D365. Currently dynamics create unique user ID with pattern like $####, which is incorrect and not matches with user information. This introduces a manual step to correct this record.

Suggested point is also something we need to be fixed.
Due to this working, we have to remove manually the automatically user created, import it manually.

For all the personalizations and transactions initially done with such user, it is complex to identify who has entered, approved a transaction.
On our context, it is really key that this feature is enhanced for a better user management (avoid to have manually user creation) and user experience (user name stored having made the transaction not meaningful).
