The group I want to add:

objectClass: posixGroups
objectClass: top
gidNumer: 3000
cn: somegroup

Are you sure you mean posixGroups, not posixGroup ?
And gidNumer instead of gidNumber ?
This was the point: the export was with "posixGroups", but the newer
schema only allowed "posixGroup". Must have been changed sometime ... :(

This schema has not changed in a dozen years. Your previous LDAP server simply didn't do schema validation and allowed you to store whatever garbage you gave it without checking.

Have a look at nis.schema (or nis.ldif) to see what attributes are required
or permitted for posixGroup.
I corrected all posixGroups to posixGroup and import worked!
