I'll just add, here, that I've noticed the same thing on a file server
I have where I do _not_ have "vfs objects = acl_xattr" enabled on the
share. It's a pretty simple share, for Mac OS clients, and I didn't
need the full Windows ACL functionality, so I went without it. I see
users in the group section and groups in the user section when I use
"getfacl" from the command line.

Yeah, I've never seen anything about POSIX ACLs being deprecated in
Samba - this would be news to me, too.

I don't want to hijack the thread, but I can provide my (saniti[sz]ed)
config, too, if that would be helpful. I'm running Samba 4.16.4 on
