So you are assuming all systems are using the extended operation to
authenticate? Acually I've see code that reads the LDAP user's password
and then "combines" that with a password the user has entered.
In the former case the password encoding matters. I'm not saying the
pattern is good, but I've seen it.
Then the application is dependent on clear text passwords, not hashed
passwords, and again is irrelevant to this discussion.
