I think you are confusing some different things.

If DB_CONFIG exists, the db* parameters in slapd.conf are ignored.  If
DB_CONFIG doesn't exist, it is created with those parameters.

If the DB_CONFIG file in the database directory has had a timestamp change,
alock will detect that, and run db recovery on slapd startup.

I'm not clear why you have shm settings in both DB_CONFIG and slapd.conf. 
Generally you should only have that set in slapd.conf, IIRC.
