"samba3" parameters in smb.conf when running as AD DC

If I set samba3 parameter (ie. vfs object) in smb.conf for samba4 it 
will print an error message: Unknown parameter encountered: "vfs 
objects", but server will start.

If I try to add it with python it will print this error message and the 
the line won't be added in the smb.conf if I then do a lp.dump(file).

This is causing a problem during provision as it's using the python 
interface for loadparm and setting some samba file server options could 
be interesting.

What's the solution ? Adding those parameters to samba 4 ? prefix them 
with s3fs and instruct source3/param/loadparam.c how to strip this prefix ?
