upgradeprovision --full fails to find CN=NTDS Settings

There are now only a couple of issues left as far as I can see.  If I
run "upgradeprovision --full" again, it says "There are 2 missing
objects".  I assume that should not be the case?

Creating a reference provision
No IPv6 address will be assigned
Copy privilege
Update base samdb by searching difference with reference one
Starting update of samdb
There are 2 missing objects
Reloading a merged schema, which might trigger reindexing so please be patient
Schema reloaded!
There are 0 changed objects
Update of samdb finished
Update of secrets.ldb
Update machine account
Some defaultSecurityDescriptors and/orsecurityDescriptor have changed,
recalculating SD
Upgrade finished!
Reopenning samdb to trigger reindexing if needed after modification
Reindexing finished

Also, samba-tool dbcheck complains about the following two things it can't fix:

ERROR: missing GUID component for wellKnownObjects in object
DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=example,DC=com -
unable to find object for DN CN=Deleted
Objects,DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=example,DC=com - (No such Base DN:
CN=Deleted Objects,DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=example,DC=com)
Not removing dangling forward link
ERROR: missing GUID component for wellKnownObjects in object
DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=com -
unable to find object for DN CN=Deleted
Objects,DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=com - (No such Base DN:
CN=Deleted Objects,DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=example,DC=com)
Not removing dangling forward link

Should upgradeprovision have created those Base DNs?  Are these
perhaps the two "missing objects" that upgradeprovision mentions when
it runs?
