This is the expected behavior: ldapdelete provides no means to
automatically chase referrals.

actually i m using ldap_delete_ext_s() for deleting an entry.
*Can this ldap api be used for deleting referral entries?*

You mean: delete the referred object (chase the referral) or delete the referral object (the reference to the real object)?

If you mean delete the referral object, the answer is: yes, but you need to use the manageDSAit control (RFC3296).

If you mean delete the referred object by automatically chasing the referral, the answer is: yes, but you need to register a means to rebind to the referred host, implementing your own rebind procedure and registering it using ldap_set_rebind_proc(3) as appropriate.

One more thing
*Can this ldap api ldap_modify_ext_s() be used for updating referral entries

Same as above.
