One can store nested group objects in a directory hosted by slapd(8).
Whether or not nested group objects are supported by any particular
application is up to that application.  (slapd(8), itself, as an
application of the directory, doesn't (for instance, in "by group"
access clauses).  But that doesn't preclude other applications of
the directory for supporting nested groups.)

This question is more appropriately directed to <nssldap@padl.com>.
