These attribute type descriptions were roughly taken from MS AD.

Today I've checked the subschema of a W2K8R2 AD server:
I did not find a single attribute type description with USAGE although there
were attribute types formally defined in RFCs. One example is 'entryTTL'
defined with "USAGE dSAOperation" in RFC 2589 which in fact was co-authored by
Microsoft employees.

The official Microsoft documentation is here [MS-ADA1]:
