[Samba] Samba local user without /etc/passwd

I have a (naive?) question about samba local users.
My system: CentOS 6.6 w/Samba 3.6, connected to an AD Domain through
When creating a local user, I always first create a Unix user with
passwd and then I use smbpasswd -a <unixuser> to establish the mapping
between the tdbsam database and the local /etc/passwd file.
I wonder if, using the tdbsam in conjunction with winbind, the local
unix user (stored in /etc/passwd) creation can be bypassed. After all,
it's winbind's role to map "virtual" user to real unix ID.
So, my question is: there is a method to create a "virtual" user, only
stored inside the tdbsam database, without touching the real unix local
users (stored inside /etc/passwd).
Thank you all.
