I have updated the wikipage, based on the info found the patch commit.

At the moment, 'profile acls' is only deprecated, it hasn't gone away
yet, so if it is still working for you, there is no need to do anything.
It may be removed in a later version of Samba, but if it is, it will
most likely be a major version, e.g. 4.9.0

You could test using Windows ACLs or what the Samba wiki shows now.

What I personally would suggest is to consider upgrading to an AD
domain. It seems to be getting harder and harder to get Windows to
connect to an NT4-style domain and upgrading brings several advantages.
