For example if I run testparm, it claims to offer a dump of "service definitions" in the smb.conf. But it is not complete when compared to smb.conf. Moreover, I can just read the smb.conf to get those.  I'd like to see the config extracted from a running instance, not from the smb.conf file.
No I don't, but if you really want to see your entire smb.conf (which 
will not help you), run 'testparm -v -s'

Then do what I asked you to do, post your smb.conf as on disk.
