3. Since it appears that the slapd.d man page is missing, could you

does changing it, automatically takes effect in the server (or you
should do something additional).
The cn=config tree always exists. Changes take effect immediately. But
if you're using slapd.conf instead of slapd.d, the changes are not saved
to any config file.
Nor does it even need to be specified, since it is hardcoded. You only
need to declare the config database in order to set the rootpw.
Otherwise, it will be there regardless. If you use authz-regexp's to
access the database, you don't need to use a rootpw at all.
man slapd(8), parameters -f -F
You should declare a database config in slapd.conf, something like
rootdn cn=config is hardcoded, it can't be altered.
