If you set a password complexity requirement in LDAP, members of the LDAP connected User Directory in Crowd will be constrained to the requirement you set.

Crowd doesn't read the policy, it just sends the password reset request to LDAP, and LDAP enforces the complexity policy. LDAP will not allow a password that does not adhere to the policy just because the request comes from Crowd.

In case you had not seen it, I wanted to share this article because it has a lot of interesting information about the way Crowd interacts with the different implementations of LDAP: Configuring an LDAP Directory Connector
