This looks very inelegant to me.

The line

install_path='${LIBEXECDIR}' (or "install_path='${LIBEXECDIR}/samba'," 
as it was before)

seems to have been included as an exception just for that 
'smbspool_krb5_wrapper' particular file. Why not maintain the behavior 
of Samba 4.3.x and keep that file in "bin"? Is that the only binary 
"meant to be run by other programs"?
