There is no specific documentation for those messages; in any case, it
is simply indicating that a filter contained an attribute value
assertion that is  non-indexed, and thus could not be exploited for
search candidate selection.  It has null impact on functionality, it's
only there so that you can decide to indicize that attribute.  Actually,
slapd-bdb(5) reports that back-bdb/hdb **NEED** equality index on
objectClass to function properly, so that message is indeed very important.
