As I recall the "expiration" for the PWDEXPITV [password expiration interval] is merely a calculated result versus an attribute, distinct from whatever is the PWDEXP() [set password to expired] setting. As such I expect that nothing is "set" when that expiration interval is reached, thus that no T-CP would result. That instead, upon initiation of some password verification [e.g. signon or CHKPWD], the effect is the following logic:

If (Current_Date-Pwd_Changed_Date)>PwdExpItv
Then SndPgmMsg(CPF22E4|CPF366B)

Additionally, FWiW:

That could be confirmed as the behavior given a user showing "Set password to expired: *NO" on DSPUSRPRF, but the password is diagnosed as expired [due to the interval] upon signon or CHKPWD. Irrespective of those, the "Status" of the user may be in play, per "usrprf was disabled".

The T-CP audit entry should exist for any explicit request to either CHGUSRPRF PWDEXP(*YES) or CHGUSRPRF STATUS(*DISABLED). Some software [I think GO SECURITY even has some] will change the status of a user profile from *ENABLED to *DISABLED when the expiration interval is exceeded, thus preventing the user from even getting the opportunity to signon to change the password. There may even be a security menu option which enables that feature, added on the job scheduler as a *DAILY activity. Those would be explicit requests to change, and thus logged.
