From rom my point of view (when I was hacking on the code) it was by design,
but I can understand the %L case.  My feeling at the time was that most
of the other cases are either best handled by a script setting the
values into LDAP (%U for example) or just using the smb.conf parameter
(ie, don't set it in LDAP).

Anyway, that's a bit of the history here.
