Still I think you should upgrade. There were syncrepl-related issues with
deletes fixed in more recent releases. 2.4.18 is out now.

BTW: luma uses python-ldap which in turn uses OpenLDAP's libldap(_r). So
what's sent on the wire does not differ that much when deleting an entry. So I
have some doubts about luma really being *the* cause of the problem.
