debian 9 fresh install, samba-4.10.2 from Louis:

root at lnxdc1:/home/service# samba-tool domain passwordsettings show
Password informations for domain 'DC=mydomain,DC=lan'

Password complexity: on
Store plaintext passwords: off
Password history length: 10
Minimum password length: 8
Minimum password age (days): 0
Maximum password age (days): 60
Account lockout duration (mins): 30
Account lockout threshold (attempts): 0
Reset account lockout after (mins): 30

if I try to change the max password age:
