If the Application Server (wgserver) logs still exist from the time the groups were created, it should be possible to find the user who added the groups.
- Create a logs.zip bundle by following the steps mentioned in Creating Tableau Server Log Files.
- Unzip the file.
- Navigate to the wgserver folder and search the files for the group names. The file names including the events of interest will be named something like "production.8001_2014_11_13....log". Using a text editor such as Sublime or Notepad++ works best as they allow you to search for a string in all files in an entire directory.
