This is base64-encoded LDIF representation of NON-ASCII chars e.g.
output by ldapsearch. The double colon :: indicates that an LDIF parser
has to base64-decode it to get the real value (see RFC 2849). The data
itself is actually transferred on the wire by LDAPv3 as Unicode with
UTF-8 encoding (in case of attributes of syntax DirectoryString, like 'cn').

Use another more GUI-oriented client which is capable of displaying
Unicode chars to explore this.
