Well, actually I did remove user from group that gives error, but it was 
before upgrade to samba 4.5. After reading your comments I've tried to 
add and then remove users from the groups with errors - and that has 
fixed all mentioned errors!

So, I think it means that 4.5 (opposite to 4.4) doesn't produce such 
errors (correct me if I'm wrong).
Anyway, that would be cool if dbcheck could check and fix 
member<->memberof inconsistencies.

Thanks a lot, Andrew and Penny!
