[Samba] help me understand ldapsam:trusted

According to smb.conf manual:
"the ldapsam:trusted=yes option assumes that the complete user and group
database that is relevant to Samba is stored in LDAP"
"ldapsam:trusted=yes can be activated and Samba can completely bypass
the NSS system to query user information".
If I understand it well, enabling this option would make possible to
authenticate Samba users against LDAP on systems without NSS support.
However, this is not the case: no matter if this option is enabled or
not, Samba won't authenticate the user if he's only in LDAP (and the
operating system doesn't see that user in /etc/passwd, and can't verify
in LDAP via NSS).
So do I understand this option wrongly?
I'm using Samba 3.0.21a on a Linux distro that doesn't support NSS.
