OK, thanks for the pointer. I understand what's going on now after seeing the 
"guest access is denied on SMB2" phrase.

I've adjusted the config, and now X-plore connects just fine. The config looks 
like this now:

        disable spoolss = Yes
        domain master = No
        load printers = No
        name resolve order = host
        printcap name = /dev/null
        server string = Samba Server %v
        show add printer wizard = No
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_KEEPALIVE
        idmap config * : backend = tdb
        printing = bsd
        valid users = __guest

        browseable = No
        force group = _shared
        force user = _shared
        path = /mnt/shared
        read only = No
        veto files = /lost+found/

So, basically, I've restricted auth to the __guest user which was created in 
the system and then added to the Samba database, and also removed that guest

I think this doesn't matter any more, but for the history it's Arch with the 
latest stable samba package (4.14.6) available.
