Read your slapd.conf file and see what the "database" section says. If it says bdb or hdb, you are using Berkeley DB as your backend. If it says "ldbm", you'll need to see what other libraries slapd are linked against.

I'd highly advise upgrading, 2.2.24 is quite old (2.2.30 was the final release of OpenLDAP 2.2). OpenLDAP 2.3.27 is the current release, and 2.3.28 is around the corner. There are a lot of new beneficial features in OpenLDAP 2.3 as well (such as automatic DB recovery on slapd startup).
