I had another run at this recently and tracked it down to this bug:
We were using the rpm package from the copr repo on CentOS6, we downgraded to the latest
389-ds-base package included in CentOS, and password expiration is working now.
Have a nice day,

Password expiration does work. What exactly are you setting? Could you
enable the audit log, make your password configuration changes, and then
post the log?
