Quoting Josip Rodin (joy at debbugs.entuzijast.net):

Correct. The main general problem behind this is that it's impossible
to entirely map NT ACLs to POSIX ACLs. Which is why vfs_acl_tdb is
being developed now.

From my understanding of Jeremy Allison's talk about it at SambaXP, if
you want a full implementation of ACLs, you'll want this VFS module. In
such case ACLs will be stored in a TDB file without trying to use the
filesystem's ACLs.
