  You have a PAM module which is run before pam_radius_auth.  That first module is checking the password locally, and when it's wrong, is setting the password to the "INCORRECT" string.

  Fix your PAM configuration so that it only does RADIUS password checking.

  i.e. this is a PAM problem.  Nothing you do to FreeRADIUS will fix a PAM problem.
