[Samba] acl_xattr does not apply to the root shared folder

I have configured the file server using acl_xattr.
I used the instructions https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_a_Share_Using_Windows_ACLs
My config contains the following settings:
vfs objects = acl_xattr
map acl inherit = yes
acl_xattr:ignore system cls = yes
path = /srv/samba/tmpdir
read-only = none
1. I have the following problem: acl_xattr only apply to subfolders in "/srv/samba/tmpdir" and do not apply to the folder /srv/samba/tmpdir. Is this correct?
2. When I add the parameter "acl_xattr: ignore system settings = yes" to the config, only UNIX ACL begin to apply to the folder "/srv/samba/tmpdir", i.e. only the owner and the group. Is this correct?
