You can activate password complexity requirement 

# samba-tool domain passwordsettings

But you can't control with through GPO, because this check is done on 
the DC, and Samba can't apply GPO. So currently there's only an "on for 
everybody" and "off for everybody" in your domain with this function. :-)
