Sadly, it doesn't seem to, or it's a combination of how I must configure
things in FreeNAS land. `testparm` shows the expected output with a few
exceptions. Fortunately, I'm able to override settings in the smb4.conf
by specifying them again, and last-one-in-wins:

It is showing up as a ROLE_STANDALONE server, but I do see during the
startup of smbd:

I assume that's from the lines, but I don't know.
        idmap config nosgoth: ldap_url = ldap://pione.dark.kow.is
        idmap config nosgoth: ldap_user_dn =
        idmap config nosgoth: ldap_base_dn = ou=idmap,dc=dark,dc=kow,dc=is
        idmap config nosgoth: range = 10000-90000000
        idmap config nosgoth: backend = ldap

Is there a way to specify things by setting them to empty? I can't
delete the entries, because FreeNAS auto-generates this file on boot
from it's configuration database, but I can append to the end and
include stuff that overrides the existing setup....

Thanks again!
