Yes.  The {CLEARTEXT} scheme is special... it's not meant to
appear in the value like other schemes.

That would break clear text passwords.

I assume the problem is that you are trying to use
Password Modify EXOP.  password-hash {CLEARTEXT}
doesn't work because there is no hash function
for the scheme.
