I just can't reply to your question as I have not this information. I don't
know how Samba works, I've got feelings about how it works : )
And as my MS world knowledge is just worst, I can't rely on it to tell you
how Windows generate its passwords policy.
How I think it works is:
you configure password policy using samba-tool
samba modifies the default domain policy (not tested, even if it's easy
windows client get the new policy when gpupdate is launched or at boot time
(because password policy is computer policy and this because there is
nothing in Samba to manage that account by account)
