In the [staff-docs] share definition on pages 168 & 169, the line "create directory mask = 0070", is incorrect as is and is ignored when running testparm:

The correct syntax is simply: "directory mask = 0070"

Paragraph reads
Roaming profiles can be disabled by setting the logon path to an
empty string.
logon path = ""

logon path =

Including the double quotes will fail to disable roaming profiles.

See <> (search for "logon path"), and also the discussion around <>.
