Well, I would say it was correct if they were always loaded when you ran

Hmm. Are you addressing my assumption about speed, or my assumption about size?

At least if you build them as
loadable modules.  Even if not, they aren't enabled unless you configure
them in slapd.conf or back-config, so they don't tend to add much bloat.

This makes it sound like you're addressing the size issue.

If so (just so I clarify for my sake), let me restate my question

Is there a performance hit to slapd, if it's compiled with overlays
and backends enabled, but slapd isn't configured to use them at

Not that I've experienced.
