    I don't use apt-get, but all of samba's config stuff is in /etc/samba on my PC. Uninstall samba and see if that's still laying around. If so, it's probably because the files are not part of the package, but created by some samba config tool after installation of the core files. Remove that directory and samba will be fresh as a newborn babe.
