If you set vfs objects on a share is overrides the global setting.

It is documented in man 5 smb.conf 

"Be aware that the definition of this parameter will overwrite a 
possible previous definition of the vfs objects parameter."

I.e. you have to repeat what you had in vfs objects global or you lose 
it on that specific share.

The setting I posted earlier is in global on my DCs, I have a similar 
(but slightly different) vfs objects setting on the fileserver
