Yep, but it's not very clear and your above example doesn't do it here. I've
read the Q119495 article as well for these names.

For example...your query
# nmblookup -U -R "gwebster#3"
querying gwebster on
wins_srv_died(): Could not mark WINS server down.
Address not found in server list.
name_query failed to find name gwebster#03

While the following does give the opposite info:
# nmblookup -U -A
Looking up status of
        AHBL29033       <00> -         M <ACTIVE>
        AHBLNT1         <00> - <GROUP> M <ACTIVE>
        AHBL29033       <03> -         M <ACTIVE>
        AHBL29033       <20> -         M <ACTIVE>
        AHBLNT1         <1e> - <GROUP> M <ACTIVE>
        AHBL29033       <01> -         M <ACTIVE>
        GWEBSTER        <03> -         M <ACTIVE>
