Notice this (from the documentation regarding "uss add")

Specifies the user's full name. If it contains spaces or punctuation,
surround it with double quotes. If not provided, it defaults to the user
name provided with the -user argument.

Corresponding variable in the template file: $NAME. Many operating
systems include a field for the full name in a user's entry in the local
password file (/etc/passwd or equivalent), and this variable can be used
to pass a value to be used in that field.

It is just a way to pass the realname to the operating system while
creating a user account.

Ask your operating system where your usernames are.
