What? Really? "valid users" and "invalid users" doesn't work on a Samba
4 AD member?

We reply on this for shares that have other shares below them (Posix
ACLs only). Where is it documented that this is now not functional?

I'm hoping it just means it's deprecated and some other mechanism has
supplanted it, in which case I'd like to know how to restrict at the
share level properly!
