Ah, I see the problem now, somehow you seem to have added the groups as 
users, now on Windows this wouldn't be a problem because Windows allows 
groups to own things, but Unix normally doesn't. I say normally because 
a Samba AD DC does allow groups to own things (just as long as you do 
not add a gidNumber to the group). I would revisit the point where you 
added the groups to the share (Actually, why did you add the groups?) 
and ensure that they are added as groups and not users.
