New files/folders created with wrong Owner(samba 3.6.12)

When a user(member of Domain Admins/Administrators Group) connects to a
share and creates
a file/folder, samba creates the file/folder with Owner as logged-in user.

Whereas Microsoft states that when the currently logged-in user is a member
of the System or Domain Administrators Group creates an object, the owner
is set to the Group by default (not the User who created the object).

Is it fixed in latest releases? if so please provide me patch details.
