That should probably be SMB3 (from smb.conf man file):
SMB3: The same as SMB2. Used by Windows 8. SMB3 has sub protocols

   *   SMB3_00: Windows 8 SMB3 version. (mostly the same as SMB2_24)

   *   SMB3_02: Windows 8.1 SMB3 version.

   *   SMB3_10: early Windows 10 technical preview SMB3 version.

   *   SMB3_11: Windows 10 technical preview SMB3 version (maybe

 By default SMB3 selects the SMB3_11 variant.
I don't have Win 10 here to test with.
