It is ignored because it is slapd's responsibility to schedule
replicas for the approriate slurpd threads; those, on turn,
simply collect their chenages and propagate them to the server.
If you look at the corresponding slapd's code, it is not ignored.

The documentation correctly describes what the software does
and it needs no changes at all.  Please read the code and the
documentation carefully, and you'll find out that they match.
