This looks like nss_ldap or pam_ldap activity to me. The connections come
from (localhost) so it is your own machine making the queries.
You should look at client-side config files to find this, rather than
server config.

You probably have "dc=example,dc=com" listed in /etc/ldap.conf or
similar  - the exact location depends on which Linux distribution you
are using. Every time something needs to look up a passwd entry you
will see a query like this.
