It seems pdb_ldap is the one.

I suspect this is just how things happened to be named at the time and
there's no real point to making the naming all consistent now.

Well source3/Makefile.in contains this:
bin/ldapsam. at SHLIBEXT@: $(BINARY_PREREQS) passdb/pdb_ldap.o passdb/pdb_nds.o
@echo "Building plugin $@"
@$(SHLD_MODULE) passdb/pdb_ldap.o passdb/pdb_nds.o $(LDAP_LIBS)
which basically means that to build the ldapsam shared object file,
you need the BINARY_PREREQS and also pdb_ldap.o and pdb_nds.o, so I
think that pretty much points to pdb_ldap being what you were looking
Also just below that are similar sections for building other *sam
modules, e.g. tdbsam.so from pdb_tdb.o.
Hope that helps :)
