Not that retaining the password is optional and not enabled by default.
By default SSSD will never store your password in the clear, it will only store a salted hash for offline login purposes.

When you explicitly configure SSSD to store the clear text password for deferred ticket acquisition it is stored in the kernel keyring which is generally considered a secure storage (ie if someone gets there you already have bigger issues).
