So, some updates.
I started that email a couple of hours ago - but suddenly, without changing a thing, the test client/station is suddenly now getting the correct GPO details.
Yet, I've not synced the sysvol or done anything to change or update the GPO on either DC.

I've got some policies that are computer based and some user based. [Roaming profiles is a computer policy.]
I'm creating new policies/GPO's.

The GPO is stored on the Samba DC's. [Your terminology is super vague, IMO. I'm not sure if you're asking where the GPO (the actual "policy") is, or if you're asking where the roaming profile for the computer/user is stored. I'm not at all sure what a "roaming policy" is supposed to be.
I'll follow this up with a new message - because while this latency in GPO/policy application/availability is a problem, I've now run into a problem that's been cropping up and I'm lost as how to deal with it.
