[cifs-protocol] String and binary forms of attributes

I am requesting correction assistance on the string and binary forms of
these attributes:

In MS-ADA3 - 2.43 and 2.44 we see a description of the objectGUID and
objectSID attributes.  Helpful cross-references to MS-DTYP are included.
However, no reference in either document is made to the ability of AD
LDAP servers to accept string (rather than binary) forms of these
attributes in searches.  

Is there a schema attribute that defines which attribute types allow
these kinds of polymorphic searches, or is it a hard-coded list?

What other attributes have such flexible matching rules?
