I'd say it's pretty safe. This code path authentiates a
foreign user, and for those we locally don't really care
about the password change times. The only situation where we
do care is when we're authoritative for that user ourself,
but then we don't initialize from an info3 struct but from
the SAM.

So I'd say that only in this particular situation (PDC
passing through a trusted user) we read the values out of
the sam_account again. But it has certainly not seen the
full test matrix.

So if you want a vote from me, I'd put it in. (fingers
crossed ;-))
