I don't know about samba 3, but in samba 2.2.x acl support was an option 
to be set at configure time (before compiling).

The smb.conf option "nt acl support" only maps the ordinary unix 
permissions to acl-like entries:

     nt acl support (S)
          This boolean parameter controls  whether  smbd(8)  will
          attempt  to map UNIX permissions into Windows NT access
          control lists.  This parameter was  formally  a  global
          parameter in releases prior to 2.2.2.

          Default: nt acl support = yes

So you normally only get three entries: one for the user, one for the 
group, one for everybody.
