Sure enough, the entry for my accesslog database's suffix doesn't have an

dn: cn=log
objectClass: auditContainer
cn: log
structuralObjectClass: auditContainer
contextCSN: 20080313163024Z#000000#00#000000

lastmod is not explicitly enabled for this database, but slapd.conf(5)
says the default is on. I'm reasonably sure I didn't specify 'lastmod off'
for that database at the time it would have been created.

Given that my consumers are using delta-syncrepl (hence the accesslog), is
there any reason I can't/shouldn't replicate the accesslog itself, too?

I've poked at this a little more, and I'm still not sure why this accesslog db didn't get an entryUUID. Am I silly wanting to replicate the accesslog, or did I do something wrong during its initial configuration/creation?

Yes, it seems a bit silly to explicitly replicate it; that means the producer has to send its contents twice to each delta-sync consumer. Just configure an accesslog overlay on each consumer and let them regenerate the log locally.
