Tested again with a new GPO, no filtering changes, gpresult still says
denied for the computer account

Thanks. I will resurrect the VMs I was using to test Samba as an AD and
will report again.

Note: I find it weird that creating GPOs result in "samba-tool ntacl
sysvolcheck" errors and ẗhat "sysvolreset  - Reset sysvol ACLs to defaults
(including correct ACLs on GPOs)." should not be used
