What version of Samba are you running?
I have 4.1.12 in production at work and have no problems when I edit
GPOs. But sysvolcheck doesn't work for a while

How did you set the policy? Via GPO doesn't work
You can only set it via samba-tool. This settings will work and take
effect. But I haven't checked if I can see the number of days somewhere.
