Explicitly excluding "memberof" should not be necessary with 2.4.40.

The problem occurs when a user entry is modified in any way, e.g. by changing a password,
adding a description, etc. From what I understand, when a change occurs in an entry,
non-delta syncrepl causes the entire entry to be resynced, not just the modified
attributes. The result is that the "memberof" attributes of this entry on the consumer are

Is this the intended behavior?

No, this is not intended. But note that you have to run slapo-memberof on each replica since "memberof" attribute is maintained locally.

Without seeing you config it's impossible to say more.
