IIRC that depends on the samba configuration. I.e. if you have ldapsam:trusted=yes in smb.conf your statement is true. But the default for ldapsam:trusted is "no" (at least according to the smb.conf man-page) and then samba will use the NSS Subsystem (and through that nss_ldap, if configured) to access user and group information. 
So unless you use ldapsam:trusted=yes, the rfc2307bis is usable with Samba as well.
