This is not what was said. Samba AD is shipped and supported in Fedora.

Whether it is supported or not in other Red Hat's maintained
distributions is irrelevant to this discussion.

As it was said in this thread before, Samba AD is not the only consumer
of public libldb API. The library simply cannot be taken away from
existing public use and made only available as a part of Samba.
