That's true but I assume that anybody that is using Samba with ldap would
benefit knowing this.

I didn't realized that slapcat was really showing everything in a format
that was usable for a future import (slapadd). I'll go to bed a little

Hopefully it will be useful for somebody else as well.
Thank you Paul for your fast answer.
