slapd(8) implements the standardized mechanism for LDAP subschema
discovery.  That is, it provides the subschemaSubentry operational
attribute in each DIT entry that points to the (psuedo) subentry
that contains the controlling schema.

You are reading about schema administration, not schema discovery.

This message in the old OpenLDAP-general archives discusses the
general LDAP subschema discovery mechanisms.

The Admin Guide does not attempt to detail the LDAP/X.500 models.
It is expected that readers of the Admin Guide have obtained
adequate understanding of the LDAP/X.500 by other means (namely,
reading documents about the LDAP/X.500 models).
