I'll make a guess.

If your existing samba3 system was set to use /etc/passwd and /etc/group
then your samba4 installation will also have to use the same 'data'. It's
been a while since I did a samba 3 domain, but when you ran net groupmap
your made mapping between the users in the domain control data base (are
you using tdbsam?) and the users and groups in linux. That mapping will
need to be retain because any SID's uses in acl will contain the uid's from
that mapping.
