Check the manual again, specifically man5/slapd-perl.5. If you can't
get the simple example working there's not much point in writing a
more complex one, is there...

Backends are statically linked by default. The "--with-XXX-module" flag
can be used to select dynamic linking for a particular backend. It will
then be built as a shared library that can be explicitly loaded at runtime
using the "moduleload" directive in slapd.conf.
