Well ... if there's not actual intention/need there, why don't you
just go and experiment with it?

And again the question - what are you expecting to happen?
What's the desired result, what exactly "is not working"?

Do a quick search on setuid, setgid, and sticky, and do a little reading. You might also consider telling us what "it" is and how you perceive "it" to be "not working".
