He cited a backup user. That isn't tied to a daemon.

The original message said this:

I think the main issue we've run into is needing the apache user ...


Another example is a backup user account that backup software logs in as.

Also some accounts that own files and some services run as that are needed on multiple machines. I suppose we could use puppet to manage those, but ldap seems more convenient.
