the user switching is done  not in the gdm, but inside the mate under
the "system tab in the" panel, that in this version (1.20) is not
avaiable, but
I will check the code, may be an option in the consolekit can make it
show up....
but if you log out, from mate, you can choose some options in the gdm
login, as language, xdmcp, ... 
the switching you are looking for was available on mate 1.12 I

the distribution uses GDM 2.18.9  with  the full gdmsetup & friends... 
On NetBSD we use gdm 2.20.11   that is quite the same one... and yes,
we have mate 2.19 on NetBSD-8.0 for raspberry pi.
