I'm using sama 3.0.24 on linux machine that serves a share for a windows client. 

When editing a file on samba, using MS Word I can see there are severals
(probably) backup files. ls looks like this:

These files do not disappear after I quit the Word.

This does not happen if I edit the files locally, the backup files are created but
deleted after application quits. 

Is it something samba related?

the share looks like:

    comment = UVT For testing
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    path = /mnt/export2/smb/UVT
    guest ok = no
    create mask = 0644
    directory mask = 0755
    public = yes
    valid users = some users
