Yes, that's correct. Enumeration slows down lookups because everything
then has to be either looked up again or returned from the sss cache. It
is turned off by default in sssd. Don't turn it on unless you need it.

You can turn off the DOMAIN\ part of DOMAIN\user in winbind:
winbind use default domain = Yes
sssd runs on Unix, so you don't need it.

 BTW, I am wondering if you actually had this working a long time ago:
you seem to have only just realised that getent passwd returns nothing
unless the domain user is specified. (?)
