I cannot reproduce it locally. I have no Emacs 25.1, so I've tested with
Emacs 24.5 and Emacs 25.2.


- emacs -Q /ssh:xxx@:
  ;; In order to get a password prompt for non-existing user xxx

- ;; Copy the the password string into the kill ring

- C-y
  ;; In the mini-buffer. You see as much dots as the length of the yanked 

Best regards, Michael.
