[Samba] vfs_fruit & resource forks on macOS

From version 4.10.6 onwards folder icons are not working anymore on macOS. I can see the "._Icon?” file written on disk but seems like Samba isn’t reading it back and presenting it to the client. Is there a change or new setting that is needed on more recent versions, or have I hit a bug? I noticed 4.10.6 had some work done regarding AppleDouble and resource forks.

In the client log I’m seeing this, not sure if it’s related:

[2019/10/21 21:20:32.854630,  1] ../../source3/modules/vfs_fruit.c:979(ad_unpack)
  Limiting ADEID_RFORK: off: 82, len: 65454
