Information in this document applies to any platform.
After creation of a new 12c database, the SYS and SYSTEM accounts are listed in DBA_USERS_WITH_DEFPWD even though the accounts were created with non-default passwords. Setting the same passwords again with ALTER USER correctly recognises that the accounts do not have default passwords.
The same behaviour may happen with some other built-in users e.g. DBSNMP, PDBADMIN etc.
