I don't think these keys are necessary anymore for a Samba4 ADDC, at 
least I have had success with out using them as the new samba emulates 
2003R2 domain and not NT4.
 From the wiki
'This changes are only necessary if you want to join a Windows7 and 
later or Server 2008 and later to a Samba NT4-style domain!

It's not required and not recommended if you run Samba as AD DC! '
