No. That is not the way it's documented. See "man users". Each item
in the check list is ANDed. What you wrote is:
Some-Attr doesn't exist AND some other attribute doesn't exist.
If Some-Attr *does* exist, the first check fails, and the next one
isn't even looked at.

It's both intended and documented.
If you want more complex comparisons, see the CVS head. There, you
if (!Some-Attr || !Other-Attr) ...
Which is what you seem to want.
