Not necessarily... My IDEALX scripts are configured to store SAMBA 
machines in ou=Computers.
So SAMBA is.
extract from IDEALX config
# Where are stored Users
# Ex: usersdn="ou=Users,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG"

# Where are stored Computers
# Ex: computersdn="ou=Computers,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG"
# computersdn="ou=people,${suffix}"

# Where are stored Groups
# Ex groupsdn="ou=Groups,dc=IDEALX,dc=ORG"

Extract from smb.conf
        ldap user suffix = ou=People
        ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
        ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers

> Did you check your LDAP tree if Posix record was added for machine?

Positive. Posix machine account is created during join operation, under 
ou=Computers, as it is desired...
