[Samba] Machine account question / unjoining a domain

Hi to all,

When I join a machine to a Samba domain, a machine account is created in 
the Samba domain controller's database.

When I unjoin a machine from a Samba domain, the machine account is not 
deleted, but remains in the PDC's database.

Is that
- because I misconfigured something in smb.conf
- a script specified in my smb.conf is not working correctly
- by design.

If by design, is it
- by Microsoft design
- by Samba design

If it is by Samba design, why so ?

Best regards, Peter Rindfuss
