(ITS#5310) ppolicy

I am testing ppolicy on OpenLDAP 2.3.39 and 2.3.38. 
When user password expired, LDAP forced user to change password using "passwd",
it bypassed all the ppolicy settings, like, PwdMinLength, PwdInHistory. 
Is there a way to force "passwd" to check LDAP ppolicy like "ldappasswd" does? 
Is it because "passwd" and "ldappasswd" using different encryption methods?

I've uploaded ppolicy and slapd.conf in khxie_ppolicy.txt.
I've google searched the issue and didn't find any anwser.

Thanks for your help.
