I'm not sure what could be overriding your "force create mode"
Comparing my working share to yours, I have not used the "force group",
or the "msdfs root" parameters. You might try disabling one or both to
see if that corrects the problem.
I did notice that the documentation says the Windows systems have to be
rebooted to work properly after a Samba "msdfs root" change, if that
