As noted in the slapo-ppolicy(5) manpage, you can simply set the
pwdPolicySubentry attribute of the target entry to point it at a non-default
policy. So create a new policy for the proxyAgent user that does not use
password expiration, and point the proxyAgent's pwdPolicySubentry attribute at
that new policy.

I figured out what I needed after Howard pointed me in the proper direction. I exported the DB into LDIF. I modified the entry for proxyagent to have:
after, of course, creating the proxyPolicy password policy with little or no controls on its expiration so that Solaris clients can bind via proxy and query the database.
I then reloaded, restarted, and everything just worked.
Thanks to everyone!
