Does that mean that the warning in the docs is out of date? Does it work on the version of Samba in the Stretch repository (Samba 4.5.12), or do I need to find a repo with a more recent build?

I am already using the uidNumber and gidNumber, as set up using samba-tool user add --uid-number and visible with ldbsearch, both on the DC. I provisioned it with rfc2307 flags.
If I specify --uid-numbers in the range 30,000,000+ they map and work. If I use 3000, which is what I am used to from LDAP, they don't. If I try to set the ranges in the smb.conf they still only work in the 30,000,000+ range.
When I get home later I will post some sample commands and config to clarify.

By unix domain member do you mean Unix member of NIS domain or Unix member of Samba AD domain? I do not want to make my Linux boxes members of the samba domain period. I am trying to use as little Microsoft related tech on the Linux clients as possible; I just want to share credentials with the Microsoft side of the network.

No by auth, I meant including local login, which works.
