Authentication is done by sasl. If the user certifcate is validated, the
user is authenticated and has the rights of an authenticated user,
that is not depending on a users entry.
If you want to grant access only by authenticated users which have an
entry, you should declare it in access controls.

Following is the output of an authenticated user with an entry.
dieter@marin:~> ldapwhoami -Y EXTERNAL -ZZ
SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: CN=Dieter Kluenter,OU=partner,O=avci,C=de
dn:cn=dieter kluenter,ou=partner,o=avci,c=de
