DHCP 4 and ldap messages

I did some cursory googling for this, as well as a brief look at isc.org
but didn't see anything non-Fedora specific on this.

In F12 and F13, when one starts the dhcp server daemon, a
message is given:  

Not searching LDAP since ldap-server, ldap-port, ldap-username,
ldap-password and ldap-baes-dn were not specified in the config file.

Is this a standard dhcp-4 thing, or a Fedora-ism.

There's no mention of LDAP in the dhcpd.conf(5) man page.  I know there 
used to be a separate dhcp-ldap package (at least in CentOS).  (I also
see that the man page seems to be a general ISC one, not Fedora's.)

It's not an error per se, DHCPD still works.  
I don't see mention of it in the release notes.  (I didn't scour them
thoroughly, I just glanced at the changes for sysadmins.)

Might be worth a mention, if only to avoid confusion--at least one
person on the forums figured they'd broken something.

Spike: We like to talk big... vampires do. 'I'm going to destroy 
the world.' That's just tough-guy talk. Strutting around with 
your friends over a pint of blood. The truth is, I _like_ this 
world. You've got...dog racing, Manchester United. And you've 
got people. Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals 
with legs. It's all right here. But then someone comes along 
with a vision. With a real... passion for destruction. Angel 
could pull it off. Good-bye, Picadilly. Farewell,
