Er no, you have one really big problem, Samba 4.6.x went EOL (from the
Samba point of view) nearly six years ago.

You may have a found a bug, who knows, you haven't given us much to
work with, but if you have found a bug, then you have no chance of
getting it fixed in your version, in fact, it may well have been
fixed in a later version.

I suggest you upgrade to a much later version, the versions supported
by Samba are (at the moment) 4.18.x (security fixes only), 4.19.x
(maintenance mode), 4.20.x (full support).
