No. Ext. attributes are automatically be enabled on Samba AD DC, because
it's at least required for the SysVol share. On Member Servers you have
to enable it per share or globally.

It allows you to use Windows ACLs.

If your source has it enabled (default on DCs), then the destination
must have this too. Otherwise the ACLs on the files/folders don't work
on the other machine.
