It now also says (at the top):

As this HowTo is based around a compiled install, the PATHs refer to 
'/usr/local/samba' as a base. If you are using packages from your OS or 
Sernet, this PATH will most likely not exist, you will need to find the 
relevant files on your system, try starting with '/var/lib/samba'.

I also use Sernet Samba 4.2.3 on one of my DCs and the required 
named.conf is in /var/lib/samba/private/ , it is also in
/usr/share/samba/setup/ but called named.conf.dlz
