No, the script doesn't create any reverse zones , it checks if any exist:

         # get existing reverse zones (if any)
         ReverseZones=$(samba-tool dns zonelist "${Server}" --reverse | 
grep 'pszZoneName' | awk '{print $NF}')
         if [ -z "$ReverseZones" ]; then
             echo "No reverse zone found, not updating"

Samba AD doesn't have any reverse zones by default, you have to create them.
