Yes, indeed, but that requires the AD user to log onto the linux box.  If the
users' share permission are set up correctly and you specify connecting 
the User's Home directory to the share in ADUC (on the Profile tab), eg as
"Connect H: to \\server\sharename\%USERNAME%", this should create the home
directory automatically under \\server\share when you add the user.
Similarly if you have any GPOs with Folder Redirection set, the folders get
created when the user logs on the 2nd time (don't know why it doesn't create
them the first time, but not a big issue).

folders-for-home-roaming-profile-and-redirected-folders/ for the steps (ignore
creating the share) but use Computer Management MMC from a Windows (7 or 10)
machine to set the share permissions and NTFS permissions on the users' share on
the linux box.   Note the permissions shown in this article are different to
that shown on the samba WiKI, but I have got this to work correctly by following
the above procedure (@Rowland you may wish to review the WikI?).
