string for the attribute without redefined attribute value.

base64 is automatically encoded/decoded when using slapcat/slapadd respectively. base64 is always used (automatically in exported data) in ldif for particular fields, like userPassword or others which have language-specific values, like:

cn: Nick Tester
cn;lang-en-us: Nick Tester
cn;lang-el-gr:: zp3Or866zr/PgiDOpM6tz4PPhM61z4E=

So, you don't have to do anything; importing the ldif will decode your data correctly.
