[Samba] File permissions for AD user that has been removed

What is supposed to happen to the ownership of files/directories of user in Active Directory on a Samba (3.6.6) share after the user has been removed from Active Directory? I see the userid is set to the uid number but admins on the share (not root) cannot remove directories owned by the user. As a root user I can delete the files or changed ownership. I would expect there is some way to make these files permissions changed after the user has been deleted but I haven't found the setting yet
