It was intentional, in that Samba4 tried to make the interactions around
loadparm simpler etc, and also per-context. The issue is that each of
the potentially multiple contexts needs to read the smb.conf, and we
would need to register a signal handler operation for each. This can be
improved however, and in practice we only have one smb.conf.
