No, Network Neighborhood will not work because SMBv1 is turned off and
this is well known, so no reason to clutter the logs any further ;-)

No, Network Browsing depends on SMBv1 and browsing is another way of
linking ipaddresses to hostnames, this has been superseded by dns in AD.
Windows now uses Network Discovery.

No, you never needed them

The idea is that the user will read 'man smb.conf' before adding
anything to smb.conf, so that the logs don't get spammed.
