Read the localSSF description in the slapd.conf manpage.

localSSF applies to ldapi:// connections, not ldap://localhost/
connections.  And what you just did was assign ldapi:// users
a security strength 0, which disallows them, rather than the default
71, which allows them on your setup (since it is above 64).

Do not use ldapi:// with clients or servers before OpenLDAP 2.3.35,
it had security issues.
