Samba can pick up certain changes dynamically, such as adding a new
share, but I would expect changing the interfaces parameter to require a
full restart: I do not think existing connections could be moved
seamlessly from one interface to another.

One way so see what Samba is listening on is to use the netstat(8)
command. Something like

netstat -lnp | grep [ns]mbd

will show you what IP addresses and ports Samba is using.
