If you read the "Handling of Foreign SIDs" in Chapter 23 of the how to 
this will explain why you need winbind. If you have winbind running then 
yes, your theory is correct (with the exception that more recent 
versions of samba allow you to delegate the addition of users to the 
domain to other users).
Hope this helps.
