No, it shouldn't matter, here is the proof that it works:

smbclient -L dc1
Enter rowland's password: 
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[SAMDOM] OS=[Windows 6.1] Server=[Samba 4.5.3]

	Sharename       Type      Comment
	---------       ----      -------
	netlogon        Disk      
	sysvol          Disk      
	data            Disk      
	home            Disk      
	data2           Disk      
	images          Disk      
	profiles        Disk      
	dropbox         Disk      
	IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba 4.5.3)
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[SAMDOM] OS=[Windows 6.1] Server=[Samba 4.5.3]

	Server               Comment
	---------            -------

	Workgroup            Master
	---------            -------

Lets connect to 'data2'

rowland at devstation:~$ smbclient \\\\dc1\\data2 
Enter rowland's password: 
Domain=[SAMDOM] OS=[Windows 6.1] Server=[Samba 4.5.3]
smb: \> 

and here is the share in smb.conf:

	path = /mnt/2HD/thinkpad/rowland
	read only = no

And here is the kicker, it isn't just on a different partition, it is
on a different Disk!
