What about (can be set globally, too):

admin users (S)

This is a list of users who will be granted administrative privileges on 
the share. This means that they will do all file operations as the 
super-user (root).

You should use this option very carefully, as any user in this list will 
be able to do anything they like on the share, irrespective of file 

       Default: admin users =

       Example: admin users = jason
