The provision commands populate some tables so that your samba can 
operate, the password option helps you to define the administrator 
password for your server.
If your server operate as standalone server, you will need this password 
to access shares as an administrator or you will need it to add users to 
your server.
If you operate your server as a domain controler this password is for 
the domain administrator.

I guess the interest of this parameter is quite obvious !
