Lets be honest about this, the sysvol, netlogon and profiles shares are
only used by Windows clients (unless somebody knows differently). This
means that no Unix client needs to be able to connect to them, so the
best way to set the required permissions is to set them from Windows
and add 'acl_xattr:ignore system acls = yes' to each share.
