You posted this:

Remove that line from smb.conf and all you will get are local users
and groups when you use the getent commands.

My understanding of that is: If you remove the 'enum' lines from
smb.conf, you will only get output from /etc/passwd & /etc/group.

That isn't true, provided everything is set up correctly (/etc/hosts/,
/etc/hostname, /etc/krb5.conf, /etc/samba/smb.conf, etc), 'getent' will
display AD users as Unix users, without the 'enum' lines in smb.conf

If I misunderstood your post, then I am sorry, but I can only comment
on what I understand a post to be.
