Default PAM and passwordtime?

According to my research... nobody seems to care that automatic password expiration is broken in FreeBSD. Notice that even when you set passwordtime in login.conf (and run cap_mkdb of course), you change your password and it doesn't update the expiry time in master.passwd.

Is there some workaround that people are using, or does nobody care?
