FROM AIX 4.1.5 man pages, finger command:

.
>*       Site-specific information

>The site-specific information is retrieved from the gecos field in
>the /etc/passwd file. The gecos field may contain the Full user name
>followed by a comma. All information that follows the comma is displayed
>by the finger command with the Site-specific information.


The method to update the gecos field is the same I answered for "change user id"
