Try this. 

In both printer shares set: 
   acl_xattr:ignore system acl = yes

Read/Use these as guideline to setup the rights. 

You MUST do this all from with a windows PC. 
And you should never touch these folders again from within Linux. 

Also i notice you use the Ubuntu samba version.
Samba version 4.7.6, Ubuntu 18..

Setup as said above if it does not work, upgrade that samba to 4.11.2 
You can find a pre-compiled here. 

wget -O - http://apt.van-belle.nl/louis-van-belle.gpg-key.asc | apt-key add -
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian bionic-samba411 main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list

Reboot, test again. 

And if you point me to the exact driver your trying, i'll test it for you on my print server.
