I am not sure, but I don't think that Linux' smbfs is part of Samba, I
though it was an independent effort, isn't it?

You are seeing "sanitized" output from "ls." Try "man ls" to find
options that make wired characters show up, like
"--show-control-chars" or "--quoting-style=..." It may also help to
pipe the "ls" output through "cat" or "od" so that "ls" doesn't assume
that it has to protect the terminal from wierd file names.
E.g. the name of that "Icon?" file really ends with a carriage return
character ('\r' in C), that is the normal convention for custom
directory icons on MacOS, so it is not surprising. I don't know what
the other filenames are, though.
