Yes, I'm sure but you don't have to take my word for it. Read the
"man" page for smb.conf:

Basically testparm tests the parameters: the left hand side, and not
the values: the right hand side. You'll find you can put all kinds of
nonsense on the right hand side of most statements and get no errors
(try it).
