Do you know a working variant?
Is it a requirement that you need to regenerate the hash on every build? If not one solution can be:

    inherit extrausers

    # HASH generated with this command:
    # python3 -c "import crypt; print(crypt.crypt('toor', crypt.METHOD_SHA512))"
    HASH = "\\\$6\\\$8Z5vMcqCIB19PgY8\\\$Sv4kAfsH1k.SANHL5JVb6hdqmQWHOeH0Rjrjyii7fGAK20Gclj/.qiBvUPnAfh.WSsr1.XV0pUNom2L9oYYDV/"

       usermod -p ${HASH} root; \
