This doesn't look right to me, but I'm not sure I understand the example. It
sounds to me like you have a group "cn=local group,dc=example,dc=com" and you
have another group "cn=peoplemanagers,dc=example,dc=com" and you're saying
that the members of "peoplemanagers" are allowed to modify attributes on the
members of "local group."

There is no facility that lets you specify members of a group as the target
of an ACL. It might be nice to say "access to group=foo by group=bar write"
but slapd doesn't support this.
