Host Samba share options?

I'd like to save my VM backups to a Samba share. I used Datacenter -> Storage -> Add -> CIFS. I can create backups, all good.

My question: can we alter the samba options used to mount the share? I'd like to use the mfsymlinks option, for example. I tried:

cifs: share
        path /mnt/pve/share
        server omv0
        share share
        content images
        maxfiles 1
        username share
        options mfsymlinks

.. but it doesn't work and proxmox just deletes the "options" line.
