This is all correct what i see: 
systemctl disable smbd nmbd winbind 
systemctl mask smbd nmbd winbind 
systemctl enable samba-ad-dc

This make sure you startup the correct parts of samba. 
You cannot start winbindd on the ADDC manualy, that is started by the samba-ad-dc process..

systemctl restart samba-ad-dc 

With the compiles packages (debian/ubuntu) dont use 'samba', 
its smbd nmbd winbind  or samba-ad-dc 
Yes samba works, but dont use it, so confusing.
