From the man page for "fstab":
       The  sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8)
       program to determine the order in which filesystem checks
       are done at reboot time.  The root filesystem should be
       specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other filesystems
       should have a fs_passno of 2.  Filesystems within a drive
       will be checked  sequentially, but filesystems on different
       drives will be checked at the same time to utilize parallelism
       available in the hardware.  If the sixth field is not present
       or zero, a value of zero is returned and fsck will assume that
       the filesystem does not need to be checked.

aye, the man page tells the truth. only changing the value to 1 on my system did cause my cifs mounts to mount properly. maybe not the correct way of doing it, but it did work strangely enough

I spent a long time to find the problem: STP - Spanning Tree Protocol.
When a host is attached such as a computer, printer or server the switch port will always go into the forwarding state, albeit after a delay of about 30 seconds while it goes through the listening and learning states.
Full story: fstab mount error at boot.
