- LocalSystem has nothing to do with AD.

- What are the two SIDs you're talking about?  Did you see an access token
  from the inside?  There are lots of SIDs in it, the user, the owner, the
  primary group, the group list and, in a restricted token, the list of
  restricted SIDs.

- LocalSystem does not exist in AD since it's a *local* account, not a
  domain account.

How does that differ from any other user account?  A user has a SID
(or uid) and when creating a default logon session then the SAM or AD
or /etc/passwd + /etc/group determine how the access token (user/group
list) look like.

We're still talking artificial here.
