I think perhaps I was just a little too early, and the full set of
packages hadn't made it onto my debian archive mirror yet, so the
upgrade was a partial one.

When I try again this morning I correctly see:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  samba4 samba4-clients samba4-common-bin
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libnetapi0 libsmbd0 samba samba-tools
The following packages will be upgraded:
  libnih-dbus1 libnih1 libsamba-hostconfig0 libsamba-util0
libsmbclient libwbclient0 locales python-samba samba-common smbclient
