this is probably a result of the rewritten RPC service infrastructure. 
RPC services now run in seperate processes started from the RPC process 
controller samba-dcerpcd. Due to this some state needed for the variable 
substitution is not present in the RPC service when expanding variables.

%I is likely one of them though I wonder whether lp_add_machine_script() 
is actually called in RPC context or just as part of the SMB 
authentication. This is going to depend on the vector you're using to 
triggert this.

we have some ideas about making to propegate more state from the SMB 
session process to the RPC service, but due to lack of interested 
parties funding the work, this has not materialized yet.
