To be more precise, authentication happens during the LDAP Bind request.
Subsequent searches are irrelevant.

Can freeradius do the same? I.e., wait for a username / password request
from a client, bind to the LDAP server using the supplied password (and
passing the username with the DN line) and report success/failure to the
Radius client based on the success/failure of the LDAP Bind transaction.
