This means when last time your Server changed his own password in AD(it’s by design-periodic changes of password for “computers” objects in AD)

Yes it is. Each computer accounts in AD (with the
exception of DC's) must reset their password  in order to maintain a valid domain membership. For Microsoft Windows 2000 and later versions, the default computer account password change is 30 days.
This is by design...
