RODCs are not supported by Samba 4.6.  We are very sorry you had the
impression this was a functional feature. 

There are numerous serious issues with both the RODC and DC side of

Samba 4.7 addresses most of these issues and limitations, however
careful testing is required, and we hope to take on more work in this
area for a future release (likely 4.9).
