OK, I have updated that wikipage, it now says:

If you have added any custom GPOs and given Domain Admins a gidNumber 
attribute, never ever use sysvolcheck or sysvolreset, this because this 
turns the windows group into a Unix group.
''(You are now probably thinking 'what?', a group is just a group, right 
? Well, no, a Windows group can do something that no Unix group can, it 
can own files and directories and guess what needs to own files and 
directories in sysvol ??)''

If you have added any GPO's and haven't given Domain Admins a gidNumber 
attribute, then you can run sysvolreset.
