Password Access Control does not work as expected


I am putting the following as the first entry in slapd.conf:

access to attr=userPassword
        by group="cn=admin,base_dn" write
        by group="cn=maintainer,base_dn" write
        by self write
        by anonymous auth
        by * none stop

To my surprise the admin and maintainer users are able to _read_ the 
userPassword attribute. I expect that users are able to authenticate and to 
set the password but nobody is allowed to read the password.

(Tested with multiple versions of OpenLDAP incl. 2.1.12)

Is this a known issue?
