Sounds like your issue is with pam_ldap, which is not OpenLDAP software.
As such, there is no code we own here that we can investigate for you.
I note that PADL, the original authors of pam_ldap, stopped supporting
it many many years ago. For several years they were referring support
customers to Symas, but we at Symas also deprecated pam_ldap many years
ago in favor of nssov.

There's nothing here that indicates any connection to OpenLDAP either.
