Can you set file attributes with GUI and Is "store dos attributes"

As far as I examined at Samba 3.5.6, I can manually set attributes.

I accessed with user monyo to test2.doc whose ACL is set as below:

# getfacl test2.doc
# file: test2.doc
# owner: tako
# group: root
# id ika
uid=2018(ika) gid=2030(ika) groups=2030(ika),2005(aclshare3rw)

My smb.conf is :
  (nothing is defined)

  path = /var/lib/samba/shares/aclshare3
  writeable = yes

  force group = root
  inherit permissions = yes

  store dos attributes = yes
  map archive = no
  map read only = no
