I am glad someone else has confirmed what I have been saying for a long
time, adding the 'idmap config' lines to the smb.conf on a DC, does

When you setup the first DC, it will use the 'xidNumber' attributes in
idmap.ldb and these are allocated on a first come basis. If you then
give users a uidNumber, these will be used instead.

So, as standard, users get an xidNumber in the '3000000' range, you
could decide to give users a uidNumber in the range '10000-20000' and
these numbers would be used instead of the xidNumbers. You could then
add a line such as this 'idmap config DOMAIN : range 30000-40000' to
smb.conf, the users on the DC would still use the uidNumber you set in
the '10000-20000' range.
