I think you may to have to resort to ADSIEdit or similar.
You could try using fsmo.py from samba 4.3.0 , it knows about all 7 
roles, so it may work with transferring to a windows DC, I am unsure if 
it will work, it should because it works on the local sam.ldb and then 
replication kicks in , but I have never tested it this way, I only 
tested it against Samba 4 DCs.

If it doesn't work, you may be able to work out what to with ADSIEdit by 
reading fsmo.py
