Adding users to dropdowns in Sharepoint lists/libraries

By mpfeffer ·
Our QA department uses Sharepoint lists to track and note issues. They have a dropdown box of users that they use to assign the issues. Some people are not in that list and we need to be able to add/remove them.

We use AD groups (QA_Contributor, QA_Administrator, etc.) to control access. The names in the dropdown box do not correspond to any of these AD groups. A temporary workaround is to go into Site Settings->Manage Users for our QA site and add the user directly. At that point, they will appear in the dropdown. However, we want to be able to control everything via AD groups if at all possible.

Does anyone know where these dropdown boxes in lists or document libraries take their entries from? I am new to Sharepoint, so I can provide any missing info if someone can point me in the right direction.
