If you want to do it via smb.conf then this works OK on a Samba4 file

path = /home/profiles
read only = No
store dos attributes = Yes
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700
browseable = No
guest ok = No
printable = No
profile acls = Yes
csc policy = disable

/home/profiles is root:root 1777

Are you sure that your Domain Users can get at:
path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/Profiles

Don't forget to set the profile path with either with samba-tool,
ldbmodify or using windows ADUC. The latter may be the easier way:
