Share permissions Server 2016

Migrating to Server 2016. The server in question is both the PDC and file server, two partitions, C and D.
D partition has the default share of D$, and this is where shares will be created from the folder tree located there.

The problem is that I can create shares all day long, with custom permissions, but the default attribute on any folder created inside of D$ is Read Only. The vendor states that it is because I created the shares via Computer Management and not the Share Wizard. Used the Share Wizard, same result.

Some articles state that this is a "default attribute" and that's just the way it is. Others suggest a command line permissions adjustment, using

ATTRIB -R /D /S "<Foldername>
or
attrib -r -s c:\test

Neither solves the problem, at least not according to the GUI.  I can't believe this to be the "way it is" because a read only shared service wouldn't work very well, and this problem has been around since Server 2008. My best guess is that unlike what I am used to, the Read Only attribute means nothing, and the share permissions over ride the folder attributes.

Yes or no? I can't really roll out a new server and domain to the users as a read only kernel. Am I missing something here?

Thanks.

An "old new thing". Just disregard it, the checkbox has no meaning in this case.

Is it really that way? When I remove it, I get a dialog box asking me what I want to do, two options, one greyed out.
Apply it, and it goes through the motions of reassigning permissions, then returns to a read only attribute.
Thanks.
