What does this mean?  According to the documentation, -r must point to
slapd's replog file, namely the file where replications are logged by
the producer.  Of course, if you point it to a file that is not a valid
replication log, the behavior will be unexpected.

Please describe what behavior you obtain and how it differs from
documented.  Note that regular users are not supposed to use the -r
switch, since slurpd typically knows where to get the replog file.

Also, note that slurpd is deprecated; syncrepl should be used instead.
