That sounds great.
So, the UIDs in pdbedit's output are not read from the Samba database,
but taken instead at runtime from /etc/passwd?
I mean, quoting the pdbedit manpage:
-L This option lists all the user accounts present in the users
database. This option prints a list of user/uid pairs separated by the
Example: pdbedit -L
-v This option enables the verbose listing format. It causes
pdbedit to list the users in the database, printing out the account
fields in a descriptive format.
Example: pdbedit -L -v
user ID/Group: 500/500
user RID/GRID: 2000/2001

(Actually, with the current pdbedit I don't see any UIDs with -Lv, I
only see SIDs; but I still see the Linux UIDs when only using the -L option)

No problem here, I have almost no group mappings at all.
