RE: Syncrepl and mmr

Thanks Quanah...

Question, about the "manage" Access Level when would that be used?

It is not talked about at all other than Table 5.4 in section 8.3.3.

I would suggest you re-read the documentation on ACLs.  As noted in the ACL documentation, ACL processing STOPS on the first matching ACL by default. 
So NO ACL is evaluated for userPassword and ShadowLastChange if they do not match the self write, anonymous auth bits.  What you would want is something like:

olcAccess: {0}to attrs=userPassword,shadowLastChange by self write by anonymous auth by replicauser read by * none
olcAccess: {1}to * by * read

I.e, specifically grant read access to those 2 attrs to whatever the DN is for your replication user.
