You have this in your logs:

[2019/06/27 15:27:59.536796,  5] 
   Get_Pwnam_internals didn't find user [profile]!

It seems to be looking for a user called '[profile]'

this is a 'service' name

 From 'man smb.conf':

   username of the current service, if any.

But there is also this:

   session username (the username that the client wanted, not 
necessarily the same as the one they got).
