I don't think so. From the above link : "RPC clients that use the named pipe protocol
sequence (ncacn_np) are exempt from all restrictions discussed in this section. The
named pipe protocol sequence cannot be restricted by default, due to several significant
backwards compatibility issues." 

Samba3 only implements the named pipe RPC's - only Samba4 does RPC over TCP.
