DOS mode bits missing from Folders

I have a question about the following piece of code in HEAD smbd/dosmode.c,
at line 139:
result = aDIR | (result & aRONLY);
This causes the DOS mode "HSA" Hidden, System, and Archive bits to be
stripped off if a folder is being processed. This makes it impossible to
store these bits on a Samba server. Windows allows them to be stored for
folders, except for the "S" System bit.
Why are these bits being stripped off folders?
Shouldn't it be:
result |= aDIR;
When I made that change, folders began to retain DOS bits like the ones
stored on Windows do.
