[Samba] things that break with unix extensions = yes, samba 4.1.5 and osx 10.9 clients?

No, I didn't. I may be mistaken that it's smbclient from Samba - was
just a guess. It might just be the code in the Linux kernel. I know
that it only tries to negotiate smb 1 and that it doesn't work at all
with Windows 8(+), so I'm guessing (again) that if it's not
proprietary smb code that it's older GPLv2 code and possibly supplied
via the Mediatek chipset. The reason I doubt it's any in-house Oppo
implementation is because they seemed to not really understand why it
wasn't working with Windows 8, claiming that it was because they
didn't do smb 2, when Windows 8 speaks smb 1 just fine (although some
early smb clients have issues with the Windows 8 "dialect").

Their is a page on their wiki that mentions open source software used
in a previous model:

But I haven't found anything relating to the current model, and my
guess is that it is using much open-source code.
