I just quickly looked and I think this should be handled by the
'map archive' smb.conf option applied by unix_mode() which is called
a few lines up.  Have you tried playing with these options first?

	map archive
	map system
	map hidden

?  Granted we need a better way to handle storing DOS attributes
that the 'x' bits.
