2.3.5 has been released, and there are 2-3 minor fixes to ppolicy included. You should upgrade.
Experimenting with PPolicy Overlay features.  Password
reset usage question:

Is it OK for applications to modify user operational
attribute pwdReset?
When I set user's pwdReset flag to true, user can't
authenticate, exception returned:
Operations are restricted to
bind/unbind/abandon/StartTLS/modify password;
Insufficient access

This is fine as user's password has been reset and
they will need to change it.
What do you mean by "user can't authenticate" ? Certainly they should still be able to Bind.
