Samba (or anyone else) doesn't support sssd on a Unix domain member
running as a fileserver.

You are mostly there:

apt purge sssd realmd

Remove all 'sss' from /etc/nsswitch.conf and make the passwd & group
lines look like this:

passwd:         compat winbind systemd
group:          compat winbind systemd
