No you are not missing a trick, Network Browsing requires SMBv1. Windows

Samba is starting to remove everything to do with SMBv1, 4.13.0 (just
released) has deprecated a few of the parameters required for a PDC, so
can I suggest you upgrade to Samba AD as soon as possible, this will
mean using non distro packages or changing distro, because you cannot
provision an AD DC on the Centos packages.
