[Samba] Question regarding Recycle

Samba 4.12 on Ubuntu 20.04
Windows 10 and 7 clients

I have configured recycle on two shares, /Users and /Documents.

vfs objects = recycle
recycle:versions = yes
recycle:keeptree = yes

On the Users share I have
recycle:repository = /share/data

On the Documents share I have
recycle:repository = .Papperskorg (recycle bin in Swedish)

The Document share recycle works. Folder was created and the test
files occured in that folder. However, for the Users share, no folder
is created. I guess I have a syntax problem, maybe I should specify
something like "= /share/data/%U" to enable per-user bins? Can't find
any good examples to guide me.

Grateful for all help, I. now have roaming folders and folder
redirection working thanks to the great wiki pages!
