Possibly.  I have found that in order to use a 'Domain Admins' user to set permissions from Windows (rather than the Administrator account) I needed to give 'Domain Admins' (or BUILTIN/Administrators) write access to the folder.

I follow Louis' very detailed explanation in an earlier thread to set permissions in Linux (see https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2021-November/238776.html ) before setting them from Windows using a Domain Admin user and it works fine as far as I can tell.
