Description

The UI only allows for selecting IPv4 addresses, but Samba should be capable of binding an IPv6 address too.
Editing the file by hand to add an IPv6 address/prefix to the "interfaces = " clause and restarting the service works.

As a workaround, it is currently possible to use "Auxiliary Parameters" to specify another "interfaces" line, which will shadow the UI generated one thus giving the needed behavior.

This can cause problems when Windows clients attempt to access hosts that resolve to both an IPv4 and an IPv6 address.
