The smb.conf.5 section for "max shares" currently says:

       usershare max shares (G)

           This parameter specifies the number of user defined shares that are
           allowed to be created by users belonging to the group owning the
           usershare directory. If set to zero (the default) user defined
           shares are ignored.

           Default: usershare max shares = 0

I propose adding below that a paragraph something along these lines:

           Note: On Debian systems the default value for this
           parameter is 100.  To disable usershares, you can explicitly
           set it to 0 in your smb.conf file.
