You can't apply Windows domain based GPOs to Linux clients without the 
usage of third party tools (tools not provided by Samba), and some of 
those tools can only apply a few specific GPOs to Linux.

Maybe what you are looking for is to be able to configure sudo rules for 
your workstations from a Samba AD DC. There are ways to extend the AD 
directory schema to store sudo rules, and at the same time, to configure 
Linux sudo to read those rules from the AD LDAP server.

For simplicity, you can store a sudoers file that grant all users of a 
domain group full sudo access, but that sudo configuration must be 
deployed to all clients. This doesn't require modifying the AD schema.
