Well, I actually say you should query the object you wish to modify
for its subschemaSubentry value.

The root DSE's subschemaSubentry, despite being SINGLE-VALUED, could
have multiple values per RFC 2251.  There is no defined mechanism to
determine which value is the one relevant to the object you wish to modify.

You have to request operational attributes you want else they are
not returned.

Try searching for 'subschemasubentry' or 'subentry'.  You get
lots of matches.  The ones from September last appear to provide
a good description of how to discover controlling subschema of
an object.
