Ok, I think we have a misunderstanding here.
does not necessarily mean Samba is used. It does mean that the SMB (Server Message Block) protocol is used.
OS/X has its own implementation of the SMB protocol that has nothing to do with Samba. If a Windows share/volume shows up on your Desktop as an icon which you can open by clicking on it and you can directly open, say, pdf files from that, then no, Samba is not involved. In that case it is purely Apple code that the Samba community has no stakes in.
