Yes, but I think you are misreading this...
It is not telling you to add 'users = %S' to the [homes] share - it said:
"The only user works in conjunction with the users = list", and then it
"adding the line: users = %S... IS THE EQUIVALENT OF adding 'valid users
= %S' TO THE DEFINITION OF THE HOMES share."
I read this as, the 'only user' and the 'users = list' is some other way
of validating users...
At least, thats how I read it.
In all honesty, I'm not sure what this 'The only user' is...
