Help - Anyone know how to use Wins Hook?

I just downloaded Samba 2.0.7 and it included a "dns_update" using nsupdate
to update DNS from a Samba WINS server, but the documentation is very vague
about its usage in the smb.conf file.

You can specify options, like "Add", "Delete", "Refresh" for the "wins
hook", but why would you unless you used multiple "wins hook" statements
throughout Samba.

If that's the case, do users have to map drives or printers for the "wins
hook" to work?
If that's not the case, why are there multiple options to "wins hook"?

The documentation doesn't say (smb.conf or README with samba).
