>From a Windows 10 (21H1) machine against Samba 4.12.15 single active directory server 

samba domain is samdom.example.com 
server is fs.samdom.example.com 

\\fs.samdom.example.com\sysvol works just fine.... 
\\samdom.example.com\sysvol asks for user/pass (even as a domain admin). 

Other shares can be accessed via either name: 
both work just fine. 

if fact the netlogon share, which is s subdirectory of sysvol works just fine 

Both resolve to the same IP. No problems with DNS updates, etc...
