Not that I know of - in Linux, the encrypted filesystem operations occur
at the block layer, so you can certainly host an encrypted file on
Samba, but the network traffic would be clear-text.
But if you are interested in doing this kind of stuff, you could
probably implement the appropriate calls (adding a new per-file
encryption layer) in a Samba4 NTVFS module.
