It might cause a bit of overhead but try adding
veto files = desktop.ini
Here is the man page info
veto files (S)
This is a list of files and directories that are neither
nor accessible. Each entry in the list must be separated
'/', which allows spaces to be included in the entry.
'?' can be used to specify multiple files or directories
Each entry must be a unix path, not a DOS path and
include the unix directory separator '/'.
Note that the case sensitive option is applicable in
One feature of the veto files parameter that it is
be aware of is Samba's behaviour when trying to delete a
tory. If a directory that is to be deleted contains
veto files this deletion will fail unless you also

as they are scanned.
Default: veto files = # No files or directories are vetoed.
Example: veto files = ; Veto any files containing the word
rity, ; any ending in .tmp, and any directory containing
word root. veto files = /*Security*/*.tmp/*root*/ ;
Apple specific files that a NetAtalk server ;
files = /.AppleDouble/.bin/.AppleDesktop/Network Trash Folder/
