Well, it probably should work as documented, but if it doesn't, you have 
absolutely no chance of getting it fixed, OEL6, RHEL6, Scientific Linux6 
and Centos6 all die in October. Samba 4.4.6 went EOL nearly 3 years ago.

I suggest you upgrade your OS, which will also upgrade Samba. If the 
Samba version you end up with is >= 4.10.x (very shortly to be 4.11.x) 
then if you still have a problem, Samba will try to fix it, any earlier 
version relies on the distro fixing it.

The thing is, your problem may have been found and fixed in a later 
Samba version.
