You can also bind as a simple user, not only as rootdn with rootpw
You can/should even delete the rootdn directive, after populating the
database with basic entries (like a manager dn).
a non-anonymous bind is just an authenticated bind

Seen in the LDAPv3 RFC (RFC #2251):
   Unlike LDAP v2, the client need not send a Bind Request in the first
   PDU of the connection.  The client may request any operations and the
   server MUST treat these as unauthenticated. If the server requires
   that the client bind before browsing or modifying the directory, the
   server MAY reject a request other than binding, unbinding or an
   extended request with the "operationsError" result.
   If the client did not bind before sending a request and receives an
   operationsError, it may then send a Bind Request.  If this also fails
   or the client chooses not to bind on the existing connection, it will
   close the connection, reopen it and begin again by first sending a
   PDU with a Bind Request.  This will aid in interoperating with
   servers implementing other versions of LDAP.

I don't know if slapd make a difference between anonymous and
