Not that i know off, but if your on buster, your not using /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc  and that should have been purged while upgrading long ago already. 
I recommend you check the installed packages on leftovers, and if you find them, use : apt-get remove --purge xxPackagexx 

You should use systemd and it services: 

# /lib/systemd/system/samba-ad-dc.service
Description=Samba AD Daemon
Documentation=man:samba(8) man:samba(7) man:smb.conf(5)
After=network.target network-online.target
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/samba --foreground --no-process-group $SAMBAOPTIONS
ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID

# /etc/systemd/system/samba-ad-dc.service.d/override.conf
After=network.target network-online.target bind9.service

Hello Louis,

Has the /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc script changed?
In the update I was doing, the change was requested, but I ended up leaving the one that was already installed, but now the samba doesn't start.

Debian Buster Samba 4.13 is now online on my repo. 

Info : https://apt.van-belle.nl/ 

With the release of 4.13 the following changes are going to happen in the repo's. 

Current (recently sended?list) 

OS-sambaXXXX with EOL wont be supported anymore, upgrade your OS and/or Samba versions! 
EOL repo's will stay online for about 6 months, that gives sufficient time to upgrade.
Aafter 6 months i'm cleanin up and the EOL repo will be removed. 
If you have special needs for a specific version, DM me, and i can give a simple setup to put them on a own repo. 

stretch-samba411???Only security updates
buster-samba411??? Only security updates
buster-samba412??? Maintainance only.
buster-samba413??? New Stable. 

bionic-samba410??? EOL
bionic-samba411??? Only security updates

focal-samba412???Maintainance only.
focal-samba413 Not online yet. most probely about 1 week after the buster 4.13

raspbian-buster-samba411 ???Only security updates
You need the buster-samba412 or buster-samba413 repo's.

Have fun with these. 

Just my tip, test 4.13 good before you use it in production. ( as with every new big release)
None?of the? xx.yy.0 versions are used in production environment. 

This what i follow. 
a .0 will go on a test server in production environment. 
a .1 will go?on auth only servers. 
a .2 will go?on auth and file share servers. 
a .3 will go on AD-DC's 

Have fun with these.
