Yes, that is, but you are going to need to pair Samba with a couple of 
other Applications, like NextCloud. Roaming Profiles are for the most 
part, a Windows thing. Actual Linux Clients use NextCloud, eGroupware 
and other support applications with Samba at the center being a 
functional stand-in for OpenLDAP and Heimdal Kerberos.
