The manpage is correct. It clearly states "This setting is only allowed in
frontend entry."

Right; I was mistaken by the fact that olcPasswordHash is allowed by class

Yes, it's allowed in olcGlobal for backward compatibility with slapd.conf, which didn't enforce any distinction between "global" and "frontend" directives. But it's not evaluated there, since it's possible to specify a hash mechanism that is loaded from a module (and the moduleLoad parsing hasn't occurred yet when olcGlobal is read).
