For the test suite, I've generated a server cert with:

slapd is listening as:

-s0 -f
-h ldap://localhost:9011/ ldaps://localhost:9012/ -d 0x4105

I.e., slapd is referring to itself as "localhost", and the cert fully refers
to itself as "localhost".

However, if I do a startTLS op to this host with reqcert set to "demand", it
fails with:

TLS: hostname (u16build) does not match common name in certificate (localhost).

Given that everything is using "localhost", it seems to me it should succeed
rather than fail, and that this error is incorrect.

The issue seems to be this if statement in tls_o.c:

       if( ldap_int_hostname &&
               ( !name_in || !strcasecmp( name_in, "localhost" ) ) )

if I remove the check against the "localhost" name, things succeed as expected.

Fwiw, I routinely test with a localhost cert, and this check has never tripped for me. But my ldap_int_hostname is also "localhost" - apparently something on your system insists that your hostname is "u16build".
