Yes, I understand that samba is complex and therefore the decision on
what to set when is likely answered with "it depends" on a case by case

In the case of "server role" and "security" it seems strange that
different settings amount to the same assumed result.

It also wasn't clear to me whether any local password management was
useful or even valid in the case of a domain member at all, but I
didn't clearly ask that question.  Yet now I infer that it isn't.

Thank you very much for your guidance!
