Regarding slapd there's no noticable performance penalty.
If you have schema-aware LDAP client applications there could be a small
performance penalty if those do not implement decent schema caching. There
are only very few schema-aware LDAP client applications which are worth using
If I want to use syncrepl to replicate my data do I have to have the
same list of schemas in the same order on the consumer (i.e. does the number
in the curly braces matter)?
In general (for safety) and if in doubt: Yes.
There might be exceptions in some rare corner cases and if you really know
what you're doing. ;-]
If I add a schema to a consumer does it have to
be added to the provider as well even if the attributes it contains are unused?
Most times no.
