I had guessed order-specific; at least, that's what the example in the
manpage suggests:

        In addition  to  the  normal  parsing  rules  specified  in  the
        chmod(1) manpage, you can specify an item that should only apply
        to a directory by prefixing it with a 'D', or  specify  an  item
        that  should  only  apply  to a file by prefixing it with a 'F'.
        For example:

Then I wonder where the sys_acl_get_file(..., SMB_ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT)
message came from...
