Why ? profiles is a windows thing and NFS isn't

I take you haven't read this:


Specifically this:

 the auto-enabled acl_xattr virtual file system (VFS) object enables
 you to only configure shares with Windows access control lists (ACL).
 Running shares with POSIX ACLs on a Samba DC is not supported.

i.e. you cannot use the 'force' lines in [profiles]
