How does the maximum password age setting work?

For example, if the Maximum Password Age value is set to 60, then the user must change his/her password after every 60 days. If the value is set to 0, then the password never expires, and the user is not required to change his/her password ever. This setting determines the minimum number of days a password must be in use before it can be changed.

How does active directory know if a users password has expired?

Instead, Active Directory sets the pwdLastSet value to 0, which makes it look as if the user’s password was never set. This simplifies the code elsewhere that computes if a user’s password has expired: if the user’s password was never set, then it was always set more than maxPasswordAge days ago and therefore must be changed at next logon!
