[Samba] Posix vs. Windows File/Directory Permissions

I want to get a better understanding of what's happening between the posix
permissions and windows permissions.
I start with a Samba 4 AD DC with a share: /mnt/data
All subfolders and files have permissions and ownership that look like:
drwxrwxrwx. 539 root root 52K May 12 17:50
The Samba 4 Admin and User accounts are not local users on the linux
server; they are only AD domain accounts. The /mnt/data share is set read
only = no. I thought the AD DC ignores the posix ownership and permission
settings, and they are controlled by ADUC settings via windows tools. But
when I chmod the directory to 0770:
drwxrwx--- 539 root root 52K May 12 17:53
I can no longer access the share /mnt/data using AD DC Admin or User
Can I get an RTFM pointer that addresses what happening in this example?
Thanks for your help.
