[Samba] Password expires every month even though 'Password Must Change' is set to 'never' (Samba+LDAP)

I've commented out #defaultMaxPasswordAge months ago. I also used "pdbedit"
and "net sam policy" to set "Maximum Password Age" to -1. When I run pdbedit
-Lv on each user, it all says "Password Must Change: never".
