The answer to this question depend on the directory application
and its configuration.

If your LDAP client is establishing its credentials via TLS and
advising the server to use an identity associated with those
credentials for directory authorization via the SASL EXTERNAL
mechanism, then one can use this identity directly in server
ACLs.  ldapwhoami(1) is useful to determine what identity the
server is using for directory authorization purposes.

Subject DNs do not necessarily name entries in the directory.

The rootdn does not necessarily name an entry in the directory,
but it certain can.

I assume your actual ACL has white space in front of each by
clause as you'd have a configuration error otherwise.

Well, assuming this is the only ACL, and its properly placed
in the configuration file, and the failure is due to insufficient
access rights, I'd guess your client is anonymous.
