[cifs-protocol] Initial replication of sysvol through FRS

I've got a question related to initial replication of sysvol, I've
noticed that if I join a W2K3 DC to a samba4 domain, where a samba4 DC
is already the FRS master and all LDAP entries related to FRS are
created, then the new DC will add entries in CN=<name of sysvol
object>,CN=File Replication Service,CN=System,DC=w2k,DC=domain,DC=tld
and under its own object (in OU=Domain
Controllers,DC=w2k,DC=domain,DC=tld, for instance under
The question that I have is the following: given the fact that the
nTFRSReplicaSet object for sysvol replication can have a different name
than "Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share)", and given the fact that
fRSVersionGUID and fRSReplicaSetGUID are not used as indicated in
22.214.171.124 NTFRS Replica Set Object and in behavior note <26> (about
Section 126.96.36.199), how a new DC locate the correct replica-set ?
I somehow have the feeling that it will use frsReplicaSetGUID in order
to locate the correct replica. If not how ?
Can you explain ?
