[Samba] Samba 4 & share permissions

I'm using Samba 4 as an AD DC and have a file server under samba 4 too.

I created a group "Share admins" with SeDiskOperatorPrivilege. Members 
can administrate the share without problems except when adding an 
user/adjusting permissions on existing shares. If some file is not owned 
by the share admins group, I get a "Permission Denied" error. Did I miss 
something? Shouldn't the SeDiskOperatorPrivilege bypass unix permissions 
(which seem to be the issue here)? The wiki does not talk about this 
since the operations are done through the "administrator" user which is 
mapped to root.
