Samba 4 does support GPOs, but for the password policy you need to use
"net pwsettings" (or "samba-tool pwsettings" in current versions of
Samba 4.)

Try "net pwsettings --help" for the options:
                        The password complexity (on | off | default). Default
                        is 'on'
                        The password history length (<integer> | default).
                        Default is 24.
                        The minimum password length (<integer> | default).
                        Default is 7.
                        The minimum password age (<integer in days> |
                        default).  Default is 1.
                        The maximum password age (<integer in days> |
                        default).  Default is 43.
