It all depends on what is meant by supported, Debian/Ubuntu supports 
their packages and Sernet supports their Samba packages. Why should 
Sernet support something they do not supply ? Sernets packages work as a 
complete system, they do not need to support the use of sssd with their 
packages, their packages work without it.

You could try contacting Sernet on contact at sernet.de 
<javascript:linkTo_UnCryptMailto('jxfiql7zlkqxzqXpbokbq+ab?Prygbzq=Ykcoxdb%/-kxze%/- at lkpriqfkd&Zlav=Pbeo%/-dbbeoqb%/-Axjbk%/-rka%/-Eboobk9');> 
(I found this in 30s, google 'contact sernet'), but I think that you 
will get the same response.
