What makes you think of that? I'm running these just fine:
ii sernet-samba 99:4.1.3-7
ii sernet-samba-ad 99:4.1.3-7
ii sernet-samba-client 99:4.1.3-7
ii sernet-samba-common 99:4.1.3-7
ii sernet-samba-libs:amd64 99:4.1.3-7
ii sernet-samba-libsmbclient0:amd64 99:4.1.3-7
ii sernet-samba-winbind 99:4.1.3-7
ii sssd 1.8.4-2
ii sssd-tools 1.8.4-2

I won't hold my breath. Ubuntu LTS guarantees timely security updates only for packages in "main" and "restricted";
packages in other suites rely on "community" support and many of them have a bad track record regarding this,
unfortunately. Samba generally is in "main", but sssd is only in "universe", AFAIK.
