A solution that works to this scenario is to use the noperm option when
mounting the smb share.  it still reports DOM\None as the group owner
(GID 15000), but I am able to access the share as expected, create
folders, delete them, etc.  
Just putting it here because I had a hard time finding the solution, so
hopefully this helps someone else...
