Have you thought of using the 'source environment' parameter?

Essentially you can have Samba source environment variable settings
from a file or from the output of a program.

Thus you could use 'source environment = /some/script %G %L %I %S %U |'
instead of preexec, and you could use %$(variable) tokens in you
'include' parameter. The script you use with 'source environment' can
also build the config file(s) to be included.

See the smb.conf documentation.
