LDAP is just the directory service for your AD; it does neither know nor care about where the groups and users have permissions.
To create more or less concise reports for security, try one of these:
SystemTools/Somarsoft (my favorite tool):
* DumpSec (http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft)
Or these tools from Sysinternals:
* AccessEnum (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897332.aspx)
* AccessChk (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb664922.aspx)
* ShareEnum (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897442.aspx)
Or this one from Scriptlogic:
* Security Explorer (http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/securityexplorer/)

Yes; NTFS, share, and other permissions are always a part of the host on which the share resides.
