[Samba] "homes" vs "home"

Thank you for the replies. After some more reading I realised that path substitution works in general shares and not just [homes], so something like the following achieves what I'm looking for:
path = /data/users/%U
This works in 4.2.14 (although I am now looking on how to upgrade Samba too!)

4.2.x is EOL as far as Samba is concerned, is there any way you can
update to a later version, preferably 4.5.x or later
