[Samba] ACLs, groups and suid-bit?

I have users in Samba AD with uid- and gidnumbers. I also have group objects 
with gidNumbers.

I have a Samba member server (all servers Samba 4.9.5-Debian) that have one 
share and a lot of directories.

The directory permissions are set as a specific group as owner, and the 
group write and suid bit are set.

  drwxrwsr-x 2 root thegroup  4096 Sep  8 15:25 groupdir

This worked fine in Samba 3. However, now when people are storing files in 
the dir the file doesn't get group ownership 'thegroup' nor does it get 
write permission bit set.

Is there a new and improved way to accomplish this now?
