Unfortunately not. The "include" parameter neither supports directory
paths nor wildcards.

It supports substitutions, but unfortunately, the %S (name of ths
current service, which would be the share name in your case), is
explicitely excluded. See the "include" parameter description in the
smb.conf man page.

However, you can of course add include statements for each new config
file you create.

As a workaround, you can write a short shell script that generates the
include statements, and run this script from your init-script/systemd
service before smbd|nmbd|winbindd|samba starts. However, this can delay
the start/reload if you have a lot of config files to process.
