[Samba] What happens to Samba permissions when moving a share on the Linux side?

I have a server with Samba 4.10.8 in AD mode, with shares on the DC. I 
know that Samba in AD mode keeps the file permissions in its own 
database, not on the Linux file system. What happens to these 
permissions if the root of a share is moved on the Linux side? For 
example, my share is currently at /mnt/point/samba/share_name, and I 
would like to move it to /srv/samba/share_name. Will that mess up the 
stored Samba file permissions - are they using full paths to find the 
files the permissions apply to? Thank you for any info
