[Samba] enumerating group members with nss_winbind (4.0.9 as AD DC)

When I do "getent group", I want to see the group's members enumerated.
With nss_ldap they are; with nss_winbind they aren't:
root at gumbo:~# getent group mgmt
There *are* members there (partially redacted):
root at gumbo:~# ldbsearch -Htdb:///var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb cn=mgmt member
# record 1
Those members are users, not groups, by the way.
I had a look at the manpages, and so far these guesses aren't helping.
I also tried increasing the "winbind expand groups = 4".
winbind enum groups = yes
winbind enum users = yes
winbind expand groups = 1
# Automatically added during provisioning;
# I don't know what it does.
idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
The main reason I want this, is so I can confirm that what libc sees on
the new samba4 host matches what libc sees on the old samba3 host.
Apart from anything else, new users & groups have been created since I
did a "domain classicupgrade", and I intend to just use samba-tool to
manually add them to the new host.
Plan B is to use "samba-tool group listmembers" &c to check what's on
the new host, but I've had some troubles with nss_winbind not showing
some users and groups that samba-tool can see, so I'm leery of that.
