What makes you say that?

encrypt passwords = yes is the default in your smb.conf file, and does
not play any role in our client code.

'client plaintext passwords = no' can be set, to avoid the client code
sending a plaintext password to server, but we will always use the
encrypted password when the server asks it too.

The wbinfo output refers to what could be called 'pre-encrypted' and
'post-encrypted' passwords.  The 'plaintext' passwords are simply
encrypted in winbindd.
