However, none of these is under control of something provided by the
samba packages.

Unmounting cifs volumes is done by the umountnfs init script.

Killing the cifsd daemon (which I suppose is a kernel daemon) is done
by <whatever is doing it>....but nothing from the Samba packages.

I don't really know whether this should be reassigned to <some
package> or whether you should look closer to your init script order,
but I don't see this as belonging to the Samba packages.
