[Samba] Changes to Folder Redirection

I am having some issues that I believe might be related to folder
redirection that has prompted me to review my folder redirection GPO
On the "Configuring Windows Profile Folder Redirections" page of the
Samba WIKI I find an 'information box' that says, /"//Windows does not
support dynamically-generated user home folders provided by the Samba
[homes] section. If you used this way to provide home folders, set up a
group policy preference instead. See _Using a Group Policy
Preference_.//"/ I take this info statement to mean that Windows does
not create a new user folder and this is why we (admins) should create
the new user folders manually on any member servers.
When I set my folder redirection up (years ago) I followed the first
section "Using Group Policy Folder Redirection".
Because all my workstations are W10 should I change to use "Using a
Group Policy Preference"?
Is this considered the "newer/better" way to redirect with W10 workstations?
And finally, when using "Using a Group Policy Preference" will Windows
then create a new users home directory dynamically?
