Mainly it's used in the legacy LM authentication. See
http://davenport.sourceforge.net/ntlm.html for details here.
For Kerberos it's a configuration issue.

At least S3 does not do Kerberos itself, we delegate this to
the system libraries. If you allow DES is a matter of
configuration, but normally, we do not do DES for Kerberos.
