I'm not quite sure if this was only to allow proper access to user
coming via SSH/ scp or if it is also needed by samba.

Maybe you wanna give it a try. What it did is just setting a default ACL
that allows user & the group (referenced by it's exact name) to access
the directory, and for nobody else.

this is just to simple commands. If you need I can look if they are
documented in my install howto.

the reason I'm using default ACL's is, that the ACL definition will be
applied to every new folder/ file that is created within the share. that
makes things really easy.
