is it possible to map root to a different user using username map?

I was told that it is possible to map the samba root user account to a
different account name and then be able to use this new name to join
machines to a domain.  Is this true?

Specifically, if I setup the username map parameter and point it to a file
that has the line:
root = admin

Will I be able to use the account admin to join machines to a domain?

Thank you.
