Did you try:

       map hidden (S)
              This controls whether DOS style hidden files should
              be mapped to the UNIX world execute bit.

              Note  that  this requires the create mask to be set
              such that the world execute bit is not  masked  out
              (i.e.   it  must  include  001).  See the parameter
              create mask for details.

              Default: map hidden = no
