It's a ApacheDS bug.

Hmm, you're very generous with my spare time.

I did and watching the LDAP traffic with Wireshark shows that ApacheDS
returns the attribute values although searchRequest::typesOnly is True
on the wire. In opposite to that OpenLDAP's slapd does not return any
attribute values in this case.
I suspect ldapsearch -A also changes the way how found entries are
Please next time use Wireshark to track things down.
