Sorry I haven't understood fully, anyway I think you're addressing the

winbind is for use in setups that doesn't use NIS and where allocation
is dynamic. if you have users on NIS the you do not need winbindd.

I think it should map windows accounts with the same Unix accounts. If the Unix account is different from windows then it should check static mapping file. Same for the groups mapping too.
