That should be an NFS mounted directory. You have to export the NFS mount with ' root' option otherwise root users will be treated as 'unknown' or nobodies. If you don't have a 'nobody' use on the system, then the files will get created using the id 65534.

65534 is the twos-complement of -2 expressed as a 16-bit number. To represent negative numbers, you first make the ones-complement (flip even bit in the value expressed as a postitive number). You then add 1 to this value to get the twos-complement.
In our case we want -2 so we first express 2 as a binary 16-bit number.
0000000000000010 = 2
Now the ones-complement (flip every bit)
Now the twos-complement by adding 1
1111111111111110 = 65534
And now you know the rest of the story.
