hm, works for me in master:

$ grep '\[test\]' -A 3 /opt/samba/etc/smb.conf
     path = /srv/samba/test
     vfs objects = acl_xattr streams_xattr
     wide links = yes

$ ls -l /srv/samba/test/dir/
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 slow slow 22 Apr  6 12:38 lnk1 -> /home/slow/file

$ bin/smbclient -U slow%x //localhost/test -c "ls dir/*"

I don't think 4.14 and master have any differences in the relevant code.

Can you therefor please provide a better to apply reproducer including 
your full config?
