Why ?
I suggested creating a new computer running Debian Bullseye (11), which 
would get you 4.13.x .
You could then join this to to your domain as a new DC.

Once everything is working correctly, you could then upgrade to 4.16.6 
by adding another new Bullseye DC running Samba from backports, this 
will get you 4.16.6

I cannot recommend the method you appear to be trying, which appears to 
be upgrading the OS (and somehow keeping the existing version of Samba)

I feel your method is bound to fail, there is just too much difference 
between 4.1.x and 4.16.6
