Hi yuo miss
if set directory create mode to 440 then this dir is exatly not axesible!
but force directory mode = 440 is only add mask parameter then clasic create
unix mask for user is OR with 440 and mask created unix is 700 + 440 = 740
and this is not axesible for group that need x atribute or wx if need write
to directory.
force create mode is OR for files but AND with create mask try read smb.conf
