The code is in param/loadparm.c.

The % subs are rather different in Samba4 at the moment, because we
don't support them generally, rather in specific places.  For some
things that are now stored in the directory, the sub is done on the
client side (ie, the standard windows way), while for those that must be
resolved on the server (such as template homedir) these are hard coded
in their particular uses.
