Macports user on login screen after migration from old Mac to new Mac

On an iMac I was running MacPorts 2.7.2 under macOS Monterey 12.5. I used the macOS Migration Assistant to migrate Documents and Settings from a Time Machine backup of that iMac to a new Mac Studio, also running macOS 12.5.

Now at the login screen I show a user MacPorts, but I do not see such user listed when, in my admin account, I use System Preferences > Users & Groups.

What, if anything, should be done?

(I do realize that I will want to do a migration of MacPorts itself on the new Mac Studio, not least because it is Apple silicon whereas the old iMac was Intel.)
