For some reason a number of my printers have Device URI: file://dev/null.

I can't delete them. I tried System-> Admin -> Printing. I also tried from the CUPS interface :631.
I looked around for the cups config file that has these printers, but
couldn't find them.
And, of course, they have similar names to the regular printers ( in
fact, the best names ) since the new queues were set up later. This
generates lots of calls wanting to know why the printer doesn't work.

I can't answer your question other than vague suppositions about roles and authority and permissions.
But the first thing that came to my mind while reading your post was:
Has your system been cracked?  This sounds like something a script kiddie would do for a joke.

Or are you unpopular with any of your fellow admins? ;-)
