No. You aren't reading carefully enough, and your script does not implement
the method that has been discussed in the original threads. There's a
difference between LDAPModify/Replace and LDAPModify/Delete. The correct
update, already described in detail in the previous threads, uses
LDAPModify/Delete and /Add. Your script uses Replace, which provides no
locking assurances. Read RFC2251 and don't come back until you've fully read
and understand the description of the LDAP Modify operation.
