Is UsePAM set in your sshd_config ?
UsePAM Enables the Pluggable Authentication Module interface. If set
to "yes" this will enable PAM authentication using
ChallengeResponseAuthentication and PAM account and session mod-
ule processing for all authentication types.

equivalent role to password authentication, you should disable
either PasswordAuthentication or
If UsePAM is enabled, you will not be able to run sshd(8) as a
non-root user. The default is "no".
