As far as I'm aware this has always been the case with Samba 4 (and 
cetainly in my experience), Linux clients aren't catered for in this 
respect. There are vey many posts on this subject on this list and over 
on samba-technical.

The workaround is to use a script, usually in association with your 
dhcpd to accomplish the update.
Any question is easy if you know the answer!
