cifs + uid confusion

I was hoping to switch from nfs to cifs on my linux systems to get away from
the need to sync uid/gid. I am surprised to find:
sets the uid that will own all files on the mounted filesystem. It may be
specified as either a username or a numeric uid. This parameter is ignored
when the target server supports the CIFS Unix extensions.
I don't understand why. I thought getting away from this obsolete model
(needed to sync + identify users on different systems by uid) was a feature
Is there a workaround?
These are all modern linux systems (clients and servers).
