Samba ad just needs the file system in one way or another (even not necessary
capable of xattrs, - tdb module can be used to store these) and a network.

It can run in a container just fine, and many people run it that way.  It doesn't
even need full-blown (docker or OS) container, it can run in a separate network
namespace from regular filesystem/OS (with data directories bind-mounted into
the right places).
