No, there is no way to see from a client which is the local path of a shared folder on the server.

If the server shares out \\ServerName\Share, you can't tell if that's actually stored on the server in D:\Data\Something or E:\OtherData\SomethingElse\Share, or anywhere else. This is just not supported by the SMB protocol, and it's always true, regardless of the server or the client being Windows or Samba.
