Just to point out the available options how to get newer Samba packages 
on a Raspberry Pi (apologies if all that is common knowledge): It is 
possible to install plain Debian, not Raspbian, on a Raspbery Pi. I have 
it running on a RPi4B, and the installation process following 
https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=282839 was not really 

I am not sure if the same is possible for earlier RPi versions, as there 
seems to be a difference in the boot sequence (something with the 
bootloader in the GPU or so).

I have a Samba AD-DC running on Debian 12 on a Raspberry Pi 4B right now.

(To be very precise, Samba is currently running in a Debian 12 VM on Xen 
on the Raspberry Pi. But that shouldn't make any difference, as the 
first step when installing Xen was installing Debian 12 on the Raspberry 
Pi, as described above. I didn't try to install Samba on the bare metal 
Debian system, but I wouldn't expect any issues doing that, once Debian 
is running.)
