All entries have some set of attributes.  In particular, they
must have objectClass attribute as well as an attribute used
for naming (technically, I guess, you could use objectClass
for naming, but that would be odd).

In OpenLDAP, if you have permission to add X, you have permission
to delete X.  That is, "modify" rights allow add, modify, and
delete operations to be performed.
