Like you would do with any other debian/ubuntu package. 
With one difference, only if you up the samba version or upgrade the distro,

Then you need to manual change that in

Yes and no, 

-No, by default debian only upgrades debian packages. 

- yes, you can get the security upgrades also. 
You need to configure /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades

I use for example.
	 // Codename based matching:
As long you stay withing the same distroline (like buster), 
Samba keeps upgrading as long you manualy up the samba version number.
