No, probably a lack of users using your combination of Samba, btrfs and quotas.
I would have thought that btrfs is becoming more mainstream now. And then, Samba and Quotas should be rather common...

Is btrfs becoming more common ?

Of course, more info may help, what is in your smb.conf etc.
Added at the end of this mail.

Why are you using a filesystem that your OS doesn't officially support ?
That implies, that it would be better with any other OS. Are you saying, that this is a known samba bug, that has been fixed, but the fix has just not yet made it into Debian? Otherwise, I don't understand the background of the question.
Appart from that:
Btrfs support was introduced in DebianSqueeze <https://wiki.debian.org/DebianSqueeze>.

You posted this:

I am using Openmediavault (debian based NAS distribution), which is not actively supporting btrfs

It is this that I was referring to.

Well, as long as this is not being reported and being improved, it will remain that way...

Possibly, but it works great with ext4

Windows (10)

What do you mean by that?

I suggest you sit down with a copy of 'man smb.conf' and remove all the default lines, then add either 'security = user' or 'server role = standalone server', you will also have to remove 'unix password sync = no' and create users (with passwords) to get your Standalone Server working correctly.
