I've never messed with roaming or server stored profiles, so I can't
tell you this is the right way to disable them.

I set logon script = netlogon.bat, stored the script in the
netlogon share, assigned "logon drive = " and "logon path = ", drive
mounts are handled in the logon script.

The logon script section in the smb.conf man page has more details.

The profiles stay local to the machine from the onset this way, we set 
no local policy or registry settings regarding profiles. Users normally 
only logon to their own PC, we backup the local profiles through a 
separate process.
