[slurm-users] AllowGroups for Partition not working?

I'm trying to use AllowGroups for partition configuration in my Slurm 
21.08 cluster. Unexpectedly this doesn't seem to work. My user can't 
submit jobs although he is member of group mentioned in AllowGroups:

srun: error: Unable to allocate resources: User's group not permitted to 
use this partition

Slurmctld has been reconfigured with "scontrol reconfigure", user has 
freshly authenticated, "id" for user shows allowed group. My nodes use 
Samba winbind for NSS info.

What's wrong?
