Yes! That's the idea! But if these records are not automatically

So why not create these objects already with instancetype 0?

And how to prevent the database from accumulating garbage?

I have 3 sites and all of them has an RWDC and at least one RODC. I use
multiple RWDCs to balance write load and multiples RODCs to reduce
replication flow. Because of my database size and number of simultaneous
clients, I needed to grow the number of controllers to balance LDAP queries
since servers became unresponsive due to LDAP memory leaks.
