Your problem isn't with smbmount, it is with smbfs. smbmount doesn't send
any TRANS2_QUERY_PATH_INFORMATION requests. Care to share what problem
you are having?

What do you mean by datafield? Are you looking at some network trace? In 
which program?

Like many other SMBs TRANS2_QUERY_PATH_INFORMATION can be used in
different modes ("infolevels") where different information is returned.
