There is not solution and it is by design.  You can read all about it on
the samba.org page.  They have covered it extensively.

Subject: [Samba] Owner changes when modifying Excel & Word files

Dear all,

I am using Samba 3.0.20-4 SUSE.
When a user (under Windows) modifies an Excel or Word file, he/she
becomes the owner of that file !!!
I have read that this is because Excel & Word delete the original file
and recreate a new one with the modifications.
But I didn't find a solution to prevent this.

Thank you in advance for your reply.
