It doesn't reset the 'o' permissions and non-domain admins will not
have access, unless you set them using setfacl, but you shouldn't do
this if you are setting the permissions from Windows.

There are two ways of setting permissions:



If you only have Linux clients, follow the first.
If you only have Windows clients, follow the second

You should not mix the two ways of setting permissions, pick one and
stick to it.
