Not really a samba question and i havent looked into the vfs modules for such things, never needed it. 

I can say that it depends on the running kernel and disktype and os latency.

If its for a SSD, then preffered kernel 4.2+ to get the best performance. 

Make sure paritions are aligned correctly, thats very very important. 
And test with the diffent schedulers.

Have a look here for some good info.
