could be.

You should upgrade to the latest 2.3 (2.3.27 currently) as the client
library saw significant improvements, while 2.2 is historic.

It's called ldap_unbind_ext(3) (used to be ldap_unbind(3), now
deprecated), and it's intended to be the opposite of ldap_initialize(3)
(formerly, ldap_init(3), now deprecated).  The name might sound
misleading; it comes from draft-ietf-ldapext-ldap-c-api.

It is, unless you call ldap_unbind_ext(3).
