Samba uses POSIX ACLs not NFS4 ACLs, but this shouldn't really be a
problem, as long as you do not run the DC on the ZFS filesystem.

You need to get the groups into AD.

Yes, but depending on where you look from, you may or may not see users
and groups, it all depends on how you set up Samba and libnss_winbind

If you moved fully to AD, you could set them from windows.

Doesn't work like that in AD, the AD user 'teddy' is 'teddy' on windows
and is either 'DOMAIN\teddy' or 'teddy' on Unix (this depends on
whether or not you have 'winbind use default domain = yes' in smb.conf)
You also must not have 'teddy' in /etc/passwd or /etc/group (i.e. you
cannot have local Unix users or private user groups).

Correctly set up, you will use the same username everywhere.
