[Samba] UID size, samba and kernel version

I found that machines running CentOS 6.6, kernel 2.6.32 and Samba 4.4
maps UID to values under 16 bits  for instance:

uid=12112(john) gid=100(users) groups=10102(DomainUsers)

however other systems parts of the same AD but running CentOS 7
(kernel 3.10 and Samba 4.7) use different, much larger IDs, for

uid=10499212112(john) gid=100(users) groups=10102(DomainUsers)

But with a similar "ending". Is it due to the kernel or the Samba
