You still seem to be confused between different ldap.conf files, bind_policy, 
pam_password etc. are not valid in the OpenLDAP ldap.conf file, most likely 
one belongs in /etc/libnss_ldap.conf and the the other in 
/etc/libpam_ldap.conf (on Debian-based systems, or /etc/ldap.conf on distros 
that use the default config file location for nss_ldap/pam_ldap as shipped 

While you may have a working configuration, it may be more  by luck than good
