Question: In Linux, are you sharing these via NFS as well? If so, when it
mounts, is it mounted as nobody:nobody?

If so, you need to fix /etc/idmapd.conf. First, add your Domain =

After doing that, nfs-idmapd -c clears the cache, and restart nfs-idmapd
and autofs. See if that helps.

Beyond that - I really don't begin to know samba well enough, but I
*think* there's a line in the configuration related to ownership and uids
