In the case of Debian and Ubuntu at least, what's relevant is the freeze date, not the actual release. For Debian 9 (Stretch) that was 2017-02-05, for Debian 10 (Buster) it is planned for 2019-03-12. For Ubuntu the relevant date is the "Debian Import Freeze" on their release calendar.

As always, if there are specific bugs in an OpenLDAP release that affect your use of it on these distros, please open a bug report in the distro tracker so we can have a conversation about backporting the patches.
