From what you have posted it doesn't, but when you do get then working,
you need to understand that EA's and ACL's can work together or
If 'acl_xattr:ignore system acls = yes' is set, they work
independently, if it isn't, they work together, see 'man
vfs_acl_xattr' for more info.

We need to find if the group has actually disappeared.
Run this on a DC:
ldbsearch -H ldap://dc3 '(samaccountname=Domain Admins)' -UAdministrator
Replace 'dc3' with the DC's name.
It should display the Domain Admins object

See here: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/File_System_Support
If it passes the tests there, you should be good to go.
