Samba doesn't allow setting ACLs for special SIDs

I noticed that Samba server doesn't allow setting ACLs for special
SIDs (like the 'NFS' or POSIX mode bits etc.). Looking at
vfs_acl_xattr it automatically resets the value of
force unknown acl user to true (which prevents setting special SIDs
that don't map to users that Samba doesn't know about).
Is there a way to configure Samba allow setting special SIDs?
Presumably if acl_xattr is not set then the ACL can't be saved and if
acl_xattr is used then unknown SIDs are remapped so are useless.
