Actually, no I did a package upgrade with the expectation I wasn't

Is it standard procedure to do this whenever upgrading to a newer
version without question?
Yes it is a standard procedure.
Or is it a matter of sometimes you have
to, sometimes you don't?
The version numbers are of the form MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH. Generally within
releases of the same MAJOR.MINOR version number you do not need to
reload the database. (There may be special exceptions. I don't recall
that there has ever been any.)
Note that this is merely speaking from the OpenLDAP source code
perspective. When you get a binary package from a 3rd party, you should
check with the package provider. If the underlying database libraries
change from version to version, you will need to reload then as well.
