(ITS#5556) ldapadd/slapadd create objects without RDN

When adding an object with slapadd or ldapadd, it is possible to create an
object which does not have an RDN, and therefore not searchable by RDN.

Example data:

dn: uid=nouiduser,ou=People,dc=openldap,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: mailAccount
maildrop: nouiduser@nest.tld
mailid: nouiduser@nest.tld
maildir: nouiduser/
userPassword:: e2NyeXB0fSQxJERCQS5wdmZYJHU0eFp3TndSRDIwSDFkTDBrNmZMRi4=
mailquota: 35969216S

The above LDIF is added to the directory without any errors and is then missing
the uid attribute.  ldapsearch will not return any results when filtering on
uid, ie:

$ ldapsearch -xZZH ldap://server uid=nouiduser

- Expected result - return the object.
- Actual result - no object returned.
- Workaround - use ldapmodify to add the uid attribute.

Please see the attached URL for complete event details (add/search/modify).
