They're operational attributes: you cannot modify them;
all you need to do is set lastmod on (BTW it is on by default).
However, you need to explicitly require them when searching.
Note that the special code '+' (a plus) allows to ask for ALL
the operational attrs when querying the server.

ldapsearch '*' '+'

will require ALL the available attrs, while

ldapsearch creatorsName createTimestamp modifiersName modifyTimestamp

will return the create/modify attribs for all the entries.
