PeopleTools 8.56.10 install to Linux existing user/group causes a password change

Installing PeopleTools 8.56.10 on Linux using existing user/group. In the PeopleTools install doc, followed Task 3-1-1: Preparing the Customization File for a Single User and Single Group. psft_customizations.yaml was created with the following:
  name: psoft
  remove: false
psft_runtime_user_name: psoft
  name: psoft
  gid: psoft
  home_dir: /home/psoft
  remove: false

Once the install is run, when log into the server with the psoft user, we are prompted to change the password. Intention is to use existing user/group. logs:
2018-08-22 16:43:47 -0400 Puppet (debug): Executing: '/sbin/usermod -p abc//abc psoft'
2018-08-22 16:43:47 -0400 /Stage[main]/Pt_profile::Pt_system::Users/User[psoft]/password (notice): changed password

 Is there any way to not change the password?

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Install tools dpk to RHEL 7. Use customizations.yaml to customize for
single user
2. After dpk completes, and log into server, prompted to change password
