Password expiry for the domain is applied using samba-tool:

samba-tool domain passwordsettings

As Samba can't read GPO files (but can serve them to clients), we don't
follow anything from the GPO.  The only exception is that if a windows
DC shares the domain, and it has the GPO files, it will 'fix' the
directory to match the GPO.
