Is this a bug or misunderstanding how indexes are working in OpenLDAP?

Below is the extract from slapd.conf file:

index  objectClass  eq
index  cn,sn,uid   pres,eq,sub

substring indexes by default only work on 3 or more characters. You can change that behavior somewhere.

So sn=r* is less than 3, so it will look at everything. If you did "sn=res*" it would work better.
