I don't think this is relevant: for what I feel to have understood Samba
generates its own tickets somewhere but not in /tmp, not available with

That's a good point... until you are using same account and keytab as Samba.

But machine accounts have a password and this password is supposed to
change in MS AD. I'm not sure it is changing with Samba AD but it could as
Samba means to reproduce MS AD behavior.

No idea about illumos but the klist you mentioned as the ldapsearch using
the ticket of that klist have to be tested using the very same account used
by illumos and the same keytab if any.

You could check that account to see it was modified since the update you
mentioned (pwdLastSet, whenChanged).

No idea if this could help, just a try...
