[Samba] Suggested change to Samba documentation - possible missing RFC2307 attribute prior to chown command?

Hi everyone, i've just been following the instructions about setting up
a Samba domain member as a file shares. I am using Samba version
4.5.16-Debian (yes its old, but i'm stuck with it for now ;) ) and I
have been following the official Samba documentation found here:
I just wanted to give you a heads up, I am finding that the chown step
described in the aforementioned documentation is a little problematic:
chown root:"Domain Admins" /srv/samba/Demo/
When I tested it on my own domain member, joining a freshly created
domain I found this step simply won't work for users using the ad
backend unless they have already added a RFC2307 gidNumber value to
group "Domain Admins".
Perhaps we/you should update the docs to describe how to set the
gidNumber in an earlier step to avoid this issue?
Would appreciate hearing your thoughts on this.
