I think you got it wrong:
* -p DAYS: Set default account expiration period in days
* -e DAYS: Set default password expiration period in days

Man pw disagrees :)
-p date Set the account’s password expiration date. This field is
similar to the account expiration date option, except that
it applies to forced password changes. This is set in the
same manner as the -e option.

-e date Set the account’s expiration date. Format of the date is
either a UNIX time in decimal, or a date in `dd-mmm-yy[yy]’
format, where dd is the day, mmm is the month, either in
numeric or alphabetic format (‘Jan’, ‘Feb’, etc) and year
