[Samba] Archive bit not changed if not owner?

We have a public share which is backed up from another machine, and use
the archive bits to detect if files have been modified.
If I create a file in the public share, the archive bit is set.
If I clear the archive bit, and then modify the file the archive bit is set.
On the other hand, if I modify a file that is owned by someone else, the
archive bit doesn't get set - any ideas on why this is?
Here's a snippet from smb.conf:
comment = Shared stuff
path = /data/shared
public = yes
create mask = 0774
force create mode = 0777
directory mask = 0700
force directory mode = 0775
#allow anyone to change the archive bit
dos filemode = yes
