Yes, however I have 4 servers and they each show a different number of groups, 128, 154, 169 and 174...  

# for i in `groups user`; do echo $i; done | wc -l

The Samba 4.6 box shows 128, which makes me think perhaps there is a limit to the number of groups that are processed somewhere... 128 being a suspicious number!..... but that's a pure guess!.
