[Samba] Curios case of UID

Not sure if this has been asked before.

When we create new users in our AD box, they get the UIDs in high 30000
range. Is this normal? If yes, can we change the starting range?

We migrated using ClassicUpgrade, now running Ubuntu 18.04 VM

The smb.conf looks like

       workgroup = ADDOM
        realm = ADDOM.COM
        netbios name = WNAD01
        server role = active directory domain controller
        idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        log level = 1
        winbind nss info = rfc2307
        server services = -dns

The samba wiki page says using RSAT(Win10) we cannot modify the Unix
attributes so cannot confirm or change

A sample
id test123 gives uid=3000015(ADDOM\test123) gid=100(users)

Thank you
