You understood correctly.

I'll give it a try. I've got the habit to place software in /opt and I'm
pretty happy and updating when a newer release comes out is easy thanks
to ansible,

fine, thank you for your time.

So just to recap: there were two problems:

1) the syntax mistake in smb.conf pointed up before;
2) a logical mistake because wbinfo can't possibily work without the
full setup that includes the nss part.

Thank you,
