samba4, does primaryGroupID attribute result in group membership without memberOf and member ?

Will someone confirm they see this behavior?  Is this going to be a
difference between samba4 and MS AD forever?  If so, I have to rewrite
some of my perl LDAP routines.

Or is it my samba4 builds?

After joining the domain, computer is listed as memberOf "Domain
Computers" but "Domain Computers" shows no members.

Same is true for the domain controller and "Domain Controllers".

Users have the "memberOf" attribute and groups have the "members"
attribute even for primary group of user.

Has impact on group policy during boot.
