This is not an account definition for the “root” user.  The manual says
that the “root” user account is special:

 -- Scheme Variable: %base-user-accounts
     This is the list of basic system accounts that programs may expect
     to find on a GNU/Linux system, such as the “nobody” account.

     Note that the “root” account is not included here.  It is a
     special-case and is automatically added whether or not it is

I suppose you can just use chsh to change the root user’s default shell.
