Samba can't load the Ceph VFS module on your system. The module is only
present in Samba 4.1.0 and later.

As you've already indicated, an alternative to using vfs_ceph would be
to share a locally mounted Ceph Filesystem. Support for ACLs was
recently added to CephFS, so this may make more sense given that
vfs_ceph appears to be lacking such support.
