[Samba] "Everyone" group missing?

I'm running 2.2.2, winbind, security=Domain and ACL support.

When I pull up Security on my w2k box I see the Everyone group appears to be 
there by default.  I even verified this on a new file.  When I remove the 
Everyone group and click on Apply, the group is already put back with NO 

My guess is that is by design.

Hope this helps
