Yes that is correct, they should be different across domains, but they 
shouldn't change if Samba is upgraded and this is what has happened for 
the OP.

I wasn't going to reply on this subject because I do not know enough 
about autorid and there doesn't seem to be  any changes to the code that 
could cause this. I did hope that one of  the other Samba team members 
would chime in.

Perhaps seeing the OP's smb.conf might help and a bit more info, is sssd 
running for instance ?
