Just to clarify two points:

a) this doesn't disable the password expiry feature, it only changes
   the relative date used to ensure that the same /etc/shadow file
   is generated regardless of the current date.

b) The behaviour only changes if SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is exported, for
   example if running "env SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH=somevalue debootstrap […]".

   Subsequent calls to (eg.) useradd would not be affected, nor would
   a regular Debian system.
