No, Samba is an open source project that provides the code and Samba+
uses the code to provide uptodate packages for various distro's

Most distro's take the code available at their release time and package
it for that release version. Debian buster supplies Samba 4.9.5 , but
whilst it it says it is 4.9.5 , it will have had various security &
bugfixes backported to it. If you want a distro that has uptodate
packages, you will need to use a 'rolling release' distro.
