Because up to 2.3 OpenLDAP didn't care about unrecognized statements. 
If you run staptest with -dconfig you'll notice warnings (if you're 
debugging slapd.conf you should; it is not the default because in most 
cases people are only interested in a yes/no question; ITS#4930 was 
filed to even remove the "success string").

It's been changed in 2.4 ever since.  Now all errors, including 
unrecognized statements, cause a bailout.
