[Samba] computer account disappears

Hi everyone,

I am using samba-ad-dc 4.14.10 from Louis' repo on Debian Bullseye.

New computer accounts are preprovisioned with "samba-tool computer add".

Then when I join a machine with the domain and the join fails the 
computer account gets removed from AD.

it sounds like expected behavior when the account is created by the join 
activity but here it is pre-existing at the moment of the join. In this 
case I would expect the account to remain untouched (and not deleted).

It is a misperception on my side or is this a bug?
