Is the Managed Service Account supported in Samba 4?

"Managed service account (MSA) or, more precisely, standalone managed service account (sMSA) — In Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft introduced the managed service account, which improves security by eliminating the need for an administrator to manually manage the credentials for each service account. Instead, an sMSA establishes a complex password and changes that password on a regular basis (by default, every 30 days). An sMSA cannot be shared between multiple computers (hence the modifier standalone)."
