You don't get any initial group mappings when you using LDAP.  The code 
for storing group mappings in LDAP (if you have (passdb = ldapsam:...")
was added in 3.0alpha23.  You will need to set them up yourself.

Or migrate them from the mapping TDB if you previously set them up.  
Details are in the release notes.
