When I view the ldap.h file, I find the following

These controls don't show up in my output above. Must
I enable these controls before client can read the
password policy messages?
The control is automatically enabled when the password policy module is configured on a database. However, since the Password Policy specification is still in flux, we never advertise the existence of the control. See clients/tools/common.c for example code to request the control.
