If you did read correct. 

You choose... 

OR posix acls setup 
OR windows acl setup. 
Do not mix up the both! 

My advice, use windows ACL setup for profiles, since "normaly" only windows computers use this, and for this, you can set the value: 

acl_xattr:ignore system acls = yes

which makes the share even more windows acl compatible, and saves right hassle.
