[Samba] DNS entries for sites that do not have a DC

Currently my Samba 4 AD set up does not add in SRV RRs for sites that do 
not have domain controllers.

I have configured sites, links, costs, subnets, etc. and these appear to 
be working correctly for the sites that have a DC.

On the page 
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759550(WS.10).aspx linked 
to from https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Active_Directory_Sites in the 
"Automatic Site Coverage" section

"A domain controller advertises itself (registers a site-related SRV 
record in DNS) in any site that does not have a domain controller for 
that domain and for which its site has the lowest-cost connections. "

Is this functionality implemented in Samba?

Is it safe to add in the Site entries by hand?
