That is correct. The definition of groupOfUniqueNames is:

objectclass ( NAME 'groupOfUniqueNames'
        DESC 'RFC2256: a group of unique names (DN and Unique Identifier)'
        SUP top STRUCTURAL
        MUST ( uniqueMember $ cn )
        MAY ( businessCategory $ seeAlso $ owner $ ou $ o $ description )

'mail' is not listed as an allowed attribute. If you want to add that
attribute then you also need to include a suitable auxiliary object class
that permits it. I don't think there is such a class in the standard
set, so you will have to create one of your own. That is probably a good
thing to do anyway, and you could start with a definition like this:

objectclass ( 1.2.826.0.1.3458854.666.1.1 NAME 'curryEduMailObject'
	DESC 'Aux object class for curry.edu'
	SUP top
	MAY ( mail )

Your entry now has two objectclasses:

dn: cn=Google,ou=Group,dc=curry,dc=edu
objectclass: groupOfUniqueNames
objectclass: curryEduMailObject

Ideally you should use an OID based on your own institution's allocation,
but that is not critical at this stage.
