An application/user can't modify the subschemaentry (to my knowledge),  this
object is maintained by the DSA.  You need to define your schemas in a schema
file (usually in /etc/openldap/schema or some such place) and include it into
your slapd.conf.

In a sense it doesn't, it is a "virtual" object maintained by the DSA to permit
clients to query it's knowledge.
