It stores the default settings for CLIENT stuff on a machine. Note that,
at least with OpenLDAP, that's the machine's file. Any user can have its
own in $HOME/.ldaprc and in any dir, say $CWD/.ldaprc
Maybe the man page is outdated, you should read the source to check
if new items have been added. Other packages rely on it (significantly
pam/nss_ldap) so non-ldap stuff may appear, whose interpretation is
delegated to these applications.

Mmmmh, don't know anything about, and don't think so.
