This server has a few share with ACL for S-1-5-11 (Authenticated users)
so maybe Samba is forced to create a id mapping because of that.

Compatibility with workstations using SSSD for domain authentication.
This is the domain algorithmic generated range by SSSD, the joined
server running Samba exclusively is just using the same range.

No problems here, only wondering how those two mapping databases
interact. do winbind search first for group mapings, or not use at all.
should I use `wbinfo --set-gid-mapping=GID,SID` instead, for mapping
these internal SIDs like S-1-5-11
