Growing database files

When I add(ldap_add) entries to my slapd server, I see the size of the files in the database directory increase, but if I delete the entries(ldap_delete) these files do not shrink.

Even if I remove all the items from the directory, the file sizes remain unchanged.

What's left in these files when there are no more entries in the database?

Do I misunderstand what it means to delete an entry?
