Evelyn and I have concluded that this is a back-end Gecko issue. We do nothing special on Gaia here. Settings app do nothing special here besides mutate the values in Settings database.

Chunk, ping Evelyn if she is wrong :)

I think we need to grey-out/hide password field when security level sets to open.
Arthur, could you please file a issue and link the number here? Thanks.
