I don't have a /etc/CA directory...do you?

I do have /etc/pki/CA directory and user ldap wouldn't be able to
descend anyway because it is perm 700 root:root

I actually have my own methods of generating certs and don't use those
in /etc/pki but the theory is much the same (and for that matter, I
don't use fedora for running openldap server).
