is this something that should be fixed in Manjaro? If so where to report this so it can be fixed for everyone?

This is the only file default present on Manjaro installations.

This is the reason why one should only use visudo to modify such files.

There is no ctdb package so you are using a third party - poorly written - PKGBUILD.

Consult the author.

I stand corrected

This file is part of the samba package.

The Arch PKGBUILD explicitly sets the permissions like this.
