Hai Chan, 

Same here. ( sernet samba 4.1.9 on debian wheezy ) ( member server ) 

I have only 1 group with GID ( Domain Users ) 
and 4 users with UID. 

both wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g show all users/groups
getent passwd  shows my 4 users.
getent group  only shows my local groups. 
getent group "Domain Users" does show my GID on this group. 

Is this what you mean? 
This is as long is i know, but correct me if im wrong. 

on the DC, If i enable winbind in /etc/nsswitch.conf ( dont use that by default ) 
i get on wbinfo -u and -g all users/groups
and same for getent passwd and getent group all my users and groups. 
but this is because of the differences in winbind on DC and member server winbind.
