this ensures you have consistent entryCSN and contextCSN

That's of course right.
But that will also more than double the time needed to load a backup on a mirrormode setup.

This procedure should only be needed if the LDIF doesn't already contain
correct CSNs. If you're loading a backup from a 2.4 slapcat you can just
slapadd it on all servers at once.

My understanding is that he was loading LDIF from 2.3, which has a different format for CSN. So the first run with -S and -w was intended to initialize CSN info in 2.4 format with the SID of the first master. This would probably require to remove entryCSN values from the original LDIF.
