Yes, I've just copied 45 GB of data from Windows to samba using
robocopy and lots of people complain they cannot modify "read only"
files (I added a comment to https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2619).
IMHO default should be to have the same behaviour as in Windows
(I don't know how to achieve it though :( ; of course, I should have
used store dos attributes = yes from the beginning, but now it's
too late).
