Strange behavior:

I have 2 samba-4.14.10 DCs on Debian 11.1

For rolling out a software I try to create shared directories in 

I create them within Windows Explorer on a domain member server.

I can create the folders, see them in the linux filesystem, permissions 
seem ok.

Within a minute or so that folder is GONE again. What could cause that?

Haven't changed config for more than a year or so.
