ldap_search or ldap_search_s ?  I'll assume your report
is in regards to ldap_search per your provided code

ldap_search() should NEVER return NoSuchObject as ldap_search
doesn't wait for the server result.  The value of ldap_get_option()
is likely associated with the previous result obtained from the
server (via ldap_result() or an sync call).

If the problem you see is truely with ldap_search_s(), please
resubmit ITS with an exact code fragment of your usage.
