Well, of course you're supposed to configure slapo-chain so that it uses
the binddn only to authorize as the original request identity.  Within the
wealth of info you provided you did not show how the chain overlay is
configured (unless I missed it), but in any case you should follow
indications here
(specifically, see the "chain-idassert-bind" stanza).
