[Samba] msdfs root = yes is the default???

Why is that when you create a share, the default is 'msdfs root = yes'?
Also, why is that a share that is set 'msdfs root = yes' -- or, rather,
a share that does /not/ set 'msdfs root = no' -- advertises that it is a
DFS root to the Linux CIFS client, /even /when 'host msdfs = no'?  This
sounds like A) a bug (ignoring 'host msdfs', and B) a misfeature (msdfs
root should probably /not/ default to yes).
