[Samba] build_sam_account: smbpasswd database is corrupt! affecting samba group mapping?

when using

pdbedit -L <user>

we get an error

> build_sam_account: smbpasswd database is corrupt!  username <user> with
uid <uid> is not in unix passwd database!
> Username not found!

This is because a user is not - as it says - in e.g. /etc/passwd.

Does this affect the functionality of group mappings in the way that this
doesn't work with the mapped unixgroup
and in which the user is in?:

For example: If you do a group mapping like
> net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Users" unixgroup="users"

so you cannot see the group "Domain Users" when browsing the domain because
of that corruption mentioned in the error message?
We use tdbsam as passdb.
