Does it mean the client system is NATed wrt IPA ?

I think that could make kpasswd fail. I need to check if this has been

The kpasswd binary I think specifies the IP address in mk_priv and fails
verification from behind a NAT.

HBAC is not involved in any way with password changes, so I am confident
you can exclude any correlation.

Yes the NAT part may be your issue.
