Re: (ITS#7342) Password modify EXOP requires a DN
I filed it in response to a posting I saw on AFP548 regarding OS X. Some users have patched OpenLDAP to work around the issue.
Though your statement is true, many SASL methods do not use DNs either. I do not see why it is not allowed for passwordModify in the same way. If it behaves as designed then feel free to close.
