(ITS#7767) Connection not reset when olcDbUri value changed in cn=config (ldap backend)

I configure the LDAP backend under a chain overlay to manage
ppolicy-forward-updates configuration, the configuration is:

dn: olcOverlay={0}chain,olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config
objectClass: top
objectClass: olcConfig
objectClass: olcChainConfig
objectClass: olcOverlayConfig
olcOverlay: {0}chain

dn: olcDatabase={0}ldap,olcOverlay={0}chain,olcDatabase={-1}frontend,cn=config
objectClass: olcLDAPConfig
objectClass: olcChainDatabase
olcDatabase: {0}ldap
olcDbIDAssertBind: bindmethod="simple" binddn="cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com"
 ntials="secret" mode="none"
olcDbUri: ldap://localhost:389

When changing the value of olcDbUri trough an LDAP client, the connection to the
server is not reset, so the configuration is not taken dynamically. All is ok if
I restart OpenLDAP.
