Thank you Noriko, but as I mentioned, I already read through the 389ds
patch and it doesn't help me. Below I have a few more questions, I will
add one that is more clear.

So the entry in this case does not exist yet, so my question is whether
the (userattr=attrFoo#userDN) part will actually match that attrFoo is
set to contain the DN of  the user that is performing the operation ?

This is also important, if attrFoo is a multivalued attribute, does this
option allow any values to be set as long as one of them is userDN ?
Or will it enforce that *only* userDN is add in the add operation ?
