Does changing password of an ldap user in AEM makes the user local to AEM?

Does changing password of an ldap user in AEM makes the user local to AEM?

If we change the password of an LDAP user in AEM 6.4 (Users > Edit User > Change Password) , the user will no longer be able to login using LDAP credentials. We understand that this is the purpose of LDAP user that password need to always be validated from ldap and not AEM local. We wanted to confirm this, we could not find any documentation mentioning this. 

 

We can obverse a new property rep:password is added to the user on changing the password. Also LDAP user node name is like userid[ldapid] while AEM user is like userid (screenshot below)

Also other than deleting the user from AEM and having then relogin using LDAP credentials, is there any other solution to reset the user  so they can always using LDAP credentials?
