Is there anyway besides replication to export those snapshots to an external drive? Or is it just replication to another FreeNAS system to have them on backup drive?

Those snapshot lives under .zfs/snapshot on your dataset. Ex /tank/mydataset/.zfs/snapshot

Imagine rsync under cron could be option.

For dealing with thoose from smb side you can either make a symlink to the ,zfs/snapshot or you can specify Show hidden file in your share setting. And you must also I think make a new veto file string with removed .zfs.

Take a dive into this thread https://forums.freenas.org/index.ph...or-restore-previous-version-under-cifs.51129/.
