My guess is that the Windows DC examined the group policy objects for
the domain (perhaps some it provided itself) and found that the password
policy was set.
Samba doesn't know about group policy as a DC, so can't use that as the
authoritative source, but it reads the setting in the directory that
Windows would update.
