Expiration time is stored in /etc/shadow not /etc/passwd.

The problem of exporting/rebuilding /etc/shadow over NIS
that shadow itself has no UID record, in the end all records
must be exported including root's!

The default setting ypserver of RH 6.x is to "merge"
/etc/passwd fields + /etc/shadow password field only.

But even after exporting shadows over NIS; the /lib/libpwdb
does not seem to check the expire time field in NIS shadow.
