That's the intended behavior. You cannot perform that operation using ldapmodify or any of the update tools. You need to implement your own client with internal referral chase cpabilities, i.e. set some rebind procedure via ldap_set_rebind_proc(), or chase the referral, i.e. parse the URL and connect to the referred server appropriately. The impossibility to define in general what's appropriate led to this choice.
