OK, there are several default lines and several lines where I went 
'why?', but what I do not see is any 'idmap config' lines. Now this 
either means you have a borked smb.conf or you are using sssd. If the 
latter is the case, then you need to ask on the sssd-users mailing list, 
this is because that is what is doing your authentication.

You should also be aware that once you hit Samba >= 4.8.0, you cannot 
use sssd with Samba.
