I am not sure what you need to do BUT, I have multiple windows AD domains
running AD Sync that I have never added exchange attributes. In most cases
you only need to have the email address and the proxy addresses set.

If you are migrating from an on prem exchange server to M365 you need
more attributes but since your domain does not have exchange extensions
in it that does not appear to be the case.

Having said the above I have never tried to get AD sync working with samba AD.
It would be interesting to get it working and several others have tried but
I do not know if they were successful.
