MacOS fidelity using xattrs is probably your core issue.

We expect working xattr support on the filesystem
given these VFS objects.

What NFS version are you using between client and server ?

Can you do without these VFS modules ? Do you need complete
MacOS fidelity for these clients ? If not, reduce this
module list.

The ideal and simplest VFS objects list is a blank one.
