Creating sites and subnets in "Active Directory Sites and Services" mmc 
does work, at least with the Windows server 2003 administration tools 
pack (didn't tried that specific task in RSAT).

I did this kind of setup a few times with different version of samba4.0 
and samba4.1 series. However I don't think I ever tried to rename the 
default-first-site though.

Can you try to create the sites through samba-tool to see if you get the 
same issue?
