[Samba] Internal DNS entries not created on Domain join of Windows computer, but with Linux it works!?

we are trying to setup a samba4 domain. It is not our first production
setup, so I am really wondering what I am doing wrong here.
We use Ubuntu 20 and the Van Belle repository (which probably is not
important here). We provisioned the domain with the internal DNS backend.
We can provision the domain, do all tests, we can join a linux system to
that domain and it will get listed in the DNS zone automatically.
However when we join a Windows system, the join works, the computer
shows up in the domain with its machine account as expected, but the DNS
entry is not created.
We made sure the only DNS server entered in the Windows system is the
domain controller. We see no suspicious messages on the DC or the system
If we later do a ipconfig /registerdns, the Windows computer shows up in
the AD DNS zone immediately.
What could be wrong here? We are already on the third round of re-doing
everything from the beginning, so I would be very glad if anybody has an
idea where to start troubleshooting.
Thank you for helping,
