Samba and login classes

I am the administrator of a Free BSD 4.2 + Samba 2.0.7 server and Czech
Win98 workstations. I wanted to restrict logins of some users to certain
times, so I have set up login class with times.allow and moved that
users to it. Now, if they log at console, the login time restrictions
apply. However, Samba seems to ignore them and allows login of the users
at any time. I suspect this is because the users have correct login
class entries in /etc/master.passwd, but no login class field in
/etc/passwd - but I am not sure. 

Tell me please - what should I do to make Samba use login classes? Thank
