Yes, that goes further than write permission by allowing (eg.) the
relax rules control.  I couldn't find definitive documentation on this.

You don't tell, but your latest question suggests that you're trying to
delete an entry outside of cn=config, which is not covered by the above
olcAccess line.  What was your exact ldapdelete command?
