It is mentioned in 'man smb.conf':

vfs objects (S)

     This parameter specifies the backend names which are used for Samba 
VFS I/O operations. By default, normal disk I/O operations are used but 
these can be overloaded with one or more VFS objects.

     Default: vfs objects =

     Example: vfs objects = extd_audit recycle
