From my reading of

these are all client-based tools, so there is no inherit reason why they
would not work with Samba, nor why new programs like them could not be
written.  But they are client-based hacks, and add nothing to security,
as you have to trust the client to run them.  (And I assure you,
smbclient will not honour that request ;-)
