What is in your smb.conf?
does it have an entry for xattr_tdb:file or posix:eadb?
What provision command line did you run?

On a correctly configured system, we use xattrs and posix ACLs by
default, so first check you really are using something else before you
start worrying.

Then, if you really are using emulated xattrs, just remove
xattr_tdb:file or posix:eadb and run 'samba-tool ntacl sysvolreset'.

I hope this helps,
