This is strange. Did you by any chance added this admin's account DN to
passSyncManagersDNs setting in ipa_pwd_extop plugin?

Right, this is done on purpose:

See docs link above. But note it is a hack and we discourage it for reasons
written in the wiki link above.

No (for security reasons).

Administrative password change is only subject to max password life time part
of the password policy AFAIR. Thus it already uses 2 different standards for
these password changes (e.g. password length is not enforced for administrative
password change).
