I have nothing against sssd, but Samba recommends using winbind instead.

This problem is very likely to be an sssd problem, users with numbers
instead of names work with winbind:

rowland at devstation:~$ getent passwd samdom\\102220

This is, of course, on AD, but the principal is the same, so the
question must be 'why doesn't this work with sssd' and the answer will
be 'we do not know, ask sssd'
