[389-users] passwordExpirationTime vs password admin


We are running Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.3 with 389-ds-base- installed. We have configured password expiration, and passwordExpirationTime is getting updated properly when the end user binds and changes the password, or when cn=directory manager changes the password. We have an API that is invoked to allow the users to change their password when they have forgotten it, so it cannot bind as the end user, but we also do not want it to have to bind as cn=directory manager. However, we haven't had any luck getting any other user to update passwordExpirationTime when updating the password. Looking at the code, it looks like password admins should be allowed to update passwordExpirationTime, but we have those configured and it's not working. Is there something we are missing?
