After installing Wireshark 2.2.4 from official Ubuntu (17.04) repository and allowing the package to add me to wireshark group, I found that I am no longer a member of any other group:

$ grep username /etc/group

and running any command as root (sudo) responds with:

username is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.

While I am perfectly fine with fixing this situation, I would like to know where can I report this unusual behavior.

You should report that to the Ubuntu package manager responsible for the package as the Wireshark project does not produce the distribution packages.
