I fixed these by adding a debian/source/lintian-overrides as suggested
by lintian doc

Added in a debian/samba.lintian file which will be copied in
/usr/share/lintian/overrides/samba (needs adding the
/usr/share/lintian/overrides dir to samba.dirs)

Corrected in debian/copyright

Corrected in debian/control.in, adding a dependency on netbase

Lintian here suggests loading confmodule even if debconf is not
used. I don't really understand why and lintian is a bit scarce:

W: swat: postinst-does-not-load-confmodule
N:   Even if your postinst does not involve debconf, you currently need to
N:   make sure it loads one of the debconf libraries. This will be changed
N:   in the future.
