I have tested it and the reason why it doesn't generate a new password
is because Djigzo thinks the password is still valid. The reason for
this is that when the Password "Date set" property (advanced user
property) of the recipient is not set, Djigzo assumes that the password
never expires. In your case you should set the date of the password
somewhere in the past.
I agree with you that this is somewhat unclear. I will either change
this is newer releases (need to think this through to make sure that
others do not rely on this behavior) or I will add a note to the
documentation. The reason this has never been a problem is that in most
cases a global or domain password for PDF encryption is not used.
Hope this helps.

Our global preferences are set to static password with -1 validity interval.
If we try to create a domain or a user with random password (password is blank and
uninherited, validity interval is set to 0 and also uninherited) djigzo does not accept
these settings and reverts to global password with inherit checked.
If password is not blank then it is set as static and never changes.
The only way to create a random password user is to temporarily change global preferences
to random, create a user and then change global preferences to static again.
Are we doing something wrong?
