[Samba] GPO Linux file policy Problem

Greetings samba team.

There is a problem for file policy type GPOs for Linux clients. to copy
files to linux clients with winbind.

The problem is that when a file already exists in the linux client with
winbind and joined to the domain, the GPO does not copy the file from the
samba server to the destination linux client, that is, it does not replace
the file in the destination if it already exists in the linux client .

For the GPO to work, the file must not exist on the linux client.

Does anyone know the cause of the problem?

Samba AD DC server version 4.17
Ubuntu linux client with samba in version 4.15.13
