[root at s4master ~]# id hansen
uid=3000376(TPLK\hansen) gid=100(users)

wbinfo --group-info=facility
wbinfo --uid-info=3000376
TPLK\hansen:*:3000376:100:Archiv Benutzer:/home/TPLK/hansen:/bin/false

So the user and the group share the same guidNumber that ends up in shares
that are not longer ownd  by the group but the user.

If I klick on (Windows) properties of the share and security the new owner
with all rights is now hansen no longer the group facility:

Not sure I understand this, are you saying a user is getting the ID
'10000' and there is also a group with the ID '10000', or are you
saying that a group has the ID '10000' and a user also has a gidNumber
attribute with the value '10000' ?

Either of those is not a problem:

rowland at devstation:~/hash$ getent passwd rowland
rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/rowland:/bin/bash

If you mean something different, please explain better.
