[Samba] quick winbindd/samba question

2.2.5-1 from RPM on a rh7.2 system.  I noticed a small inconsistency 
that I was unsure about, relating to winbind.
A directory listing shows the first 8 characters in the user and group 
of the uploaded file (note the upper case)
user: MY_DOMAI
group: MY_DOMAI
Then playing with exec =
%g evaluated to "MY_DOMAIN+Domain Users"
%u evaluated to "my_domain+username" where username is my nt login

You can see in the case of %u the domain name appeared in lower-case... 
is this a non-issue?  Do I not have to worry about weird case problems 
when specifying write lists, etc?

getent passwd|grep 10000:10000 reports it like "MY_DOMAIN+username"

Sorry if this has already been discussed somewhere in the doc, I didn't 
see it.
