Seems like lmhosts is only for samba then? Not that I care, just being
curious.

It and WINS actually go back to before TCP/IP became popular. Back
then, it was used with NetBIOS on DOS, Windows and OS/2. I came across
those settings when I was doing 3rd level OS/2 support at IBM Canada.
At that time, local LAN file sharing was not carried on IP.
