There are 3/4 ways to lists SIDs in a PAC structure, one is the classic
way with only sids related to the domain, then a extra sid field with
sull SIDs not related to the domain, then a sid compression feature (to
reduce space, but still list extra sids) and I forgot if the Claim stuff
added a 4th way to lists SIDs or if it reuses one of the above.

It certainly isn't Sam Info3 and hasn't been for quite a while.
