Thanks.  That's my fault, I'll fix it shortly.

You have allocated SIDS with RID values from the 'well known' range (<
1000).  This is broken, and much be corrected before importing into
Samba4, as these RIDs belong to special objects in Active Directory.

As long as your machines do not own files, changing the SID should be
mostly harmless.
