I think you mean 'should' rather than 'may' ;-)

Without those two lines, Samba will still know who your users and
groups are, the only real obvious change is that 'getent passwd' will
only show local Unix users and 'getent group' will only show local Unix
groups. Using a username or group with getent will show the info for
the username or group.

Having those two line in smb.conf is NOT required, everything will work
without them.
