Default User password change which syntax checking

I have FDS 1.1.1 running with password policy and syntax checking
working for user passwords via the console, but I haven't been able to
get ldappasswd (from mozldap-tools package) to pay attention to those
password constraints that I know work via the console. That is,
ldappasswd succeeds even when given passwords that fail in the console.
Is this what I should expect to see?

AFAICS from looking at source code, manual pages etc, ldappasswd passes
the plaintext password to the server to be encrypted and if that's the
case then I'm assuming that password checks should be working. I
understand that password checks can't be done if the userPassword
attribute is modified directly, e.g. by ldapmodify.

I get the feeling I'm missing something very basic, so any clarification
would be greatly appreciated.
