Yes, is no difference between '-UAdministrator' and '-U Administrator'.
But it seems, as ldbsearch in 4.9.5 is different than 4.9.4-.
(I was furious with that, because I found lot articles on net, where
-U _username_ was stated.

My ldbsearch is from pure Samba-4.9.5, self compiled on Fedora 29 x86_64.
And now I see it even has not '-V' switch:
