Does your "permission" mean just permision or ACL?
And do you set "store dos attributes = yes"?

Please show me 

$ ls -la  /parentdir
$ getfacl /parentdir
$ ls -la  /parentdir/createdfile
$ getfacl /parentdir/createdfile

And the expected:

$ ls -la  /parentdir/createdfile
$ getfacl /parentdir/createdfile

And your smb.conf.
