root/home directory has ownership changed to the wrong user/owner mysteriously

I figured out what caused this but don't have the solution just yet.  I would deploy a certain script from a .tar.gz to some servers and found that /root was always owned by user and group "1000.1000".  This corresonded to the user who made the .tar.gz.

For some reason when extract normally with "tar -zxvf file.tar.gz" it impacts the parent directories ownership.  There must be some recursion going on or possibly the .tar.gz but I haven't found the solution.

The solution is here.
