This is caused by the way these attributes are defined in the schema.

PostalAddress and HomePostalAddress have:
 "EQUALITY caseIgnoreListMatch
 SUBSTR caseIgnoreListSubstringsMatch"
These matching rules aren't supported by Openldap.

FacsimileTelephoneNumber has no matching rule at all (neither does
telexNumber and a few others).

See this thread
for more discussion on the reasons behind this.
