You have to include another smb.conf within the definition of the homes share. I'm 
not sure which percent substitution (%U?) it is but consider something like

        ; default settings when smb.conf.%U not found
        create mask = 0xxx
	directory mask = 0xxx
	include = /your_path/smb.conf.%U

Now create a different smb.conf.<what_name_ever> for each user with the need for a 
different umask.

I don't have my samba machine available at the moment, so please apologize typos.

Hasta la vista,
