I tried it today with the images built for anaconda dnf test day . The results are very much different, see below:

So, 3 of your 7 proposed passwords are not allowed in Anaconda.
All of these are also weak (8 characters randomly typed on the keyboard, containing an uppercase letter, a number and a special character):
s at tYu9vb
... and I assume *everything else* based on this formula, according to my testing.
I wonder why is my experience so vastly different from yours?
