It depends, but that particular attribute is stored directly in the
account record. After changing it, how did you test?
Several things could have caused your issue:
1. A typo.
2. You don't have password expiration enabled for that user, or that
user's part of your LDAP tree, or globally.
3. You didn't test with something that pays attention to the
password expiration attributes.
Just tweaking that attribute will do nothing in itself, but without
knowing what else you did or how you tested it'd be very difficult to
try to explain why it didn't work.
