As I said, there have been a lot of changes to Samba since 4.2.x, some
of these changes have been aimed at getting Samba to work faster and,
as far as I am aware, there are more in the upcoming 4.7.0.

Can I also suggest you remove these lines:

    winbind enum users  = yes
    winbind enum groups = yes

You do not need them and guess what, they slow Samba down.
