Yes, I looked at the source again, and indeed it might check other
sources before falling back to /etc/group. However, the text below
to be in contradiction to this behavior:

I agree that it might not be a bug in the source, but that then one in
documentation then? I didn't proofread 'man smb.conf' but it seems also
