we use getpwnam etc.  it is not samba's responsibility for these functions
to use nss_ldap or any other module, it is the responsibility of the OS
that you are running on.

you will need to replace / recompile / upgrade the OS library that
implements the getXXbyYYY functions (e.g getpwnam, getgrgid etc).
