[Samba] Forcing smbstatus to use hosts file or to avoid resolving hostnames at all

I am looking for a way to have numeric (IP) output for the host from smbstatus
or at least have it using /etc/hosts instead of whatever resolution mechanism it
I tried putting "host" (and "hosts", just in case as a few example used "hosts"
and not "host"...) in "name resolve order" directive in smb.conf to no avail.
I also tried disabling "hostname lookup" in smb.conf and smbstatus didn't care
much for that.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.
