We have created a El Capitan upgrade self service. In the self service we have the restart option of "Perform authenticated restart on computers with FileVault 2 enabled" turned on. The machine will restart and preform the upgrade. After the upgrade is done when we go into the Users folder we now have a restricted user folder for _mbsetupuser. I am guessing this has something to do with the changes with El Capitan and the Root user account. Is anyone else seeing this? Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get rid of it or hiding it again?
On our test machines without File Vault2 enabled this user folder does not show up.

You could get rid of it with
sysadminctl -deleteUser _mbsetupuser && rm -R /Users/_mbsetupuser run as a policy.
Just need to check what this user is for before deleting it :)

You could also hide it if you don't want to delete it.
sudo chflags hidden /Users/_mbsetupuser
You can undo it at anytime with:
sudo chflags nohidden /Users/_mbsetupuser
