Leave the sudoers entry to cloud-init, as they do in Fedora.

This is what I have at present as the system_info entry in the cloud.cfg 

    name: centos
    lock_passwd: true
    gecos: CentOS Cloud User
    groups: [wheel, adm]
    sudo: ["ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL"]
    shell: /bin/bash
  distro: rhel
    cloud_dir: /var/lib/cloud
    templates_dir: /etc/cloud/templates
  ssh_svcname: sshd
