The fix was to define rootdn globally (as the module operates globally),
and then to give it explicit manage access in an ACL.  eg

access to dn.subtree="${DOMAINDN}"
       by dn=cn=samba-admin,cn=samba manage
       by dn=cn=manager manage
       by * none

rootdn cn=Manager

Adding a rootdn to each database then quashed the warnings about 'rootdn
can always manage'.  

Otherwise, if I had 'by * read' then this also allowed the module to operate
correctly (but without the secrecy I desired)
