I've also read the ITS carefully. And I've observed my logdb!

The point is that the operations by slapo-memberof reach the logdb but the
write operation to the group entry is not in the logdb! So from my
understanding delta-syncrepl won't work correctly if slapo-memberof is used on
the provider no matter in which part of the code the bug was.

So the general recommendation for delta-syncrepl has some caveats...
