JIRA LDAP user must be an "administrator for the LDAP engine"

In the JIRA Administrator's documentation, I noticed the following line:

Ensure that this is an administrator user for the LDAP engine. For 
example, in Active Directory the user will need to be a member of the 
built-in Administrators group.

Why would the LDAP user need to even have write access, let alone be an Administrator?

I'm using ActiveDirectory, and to get a user with that level of permissions will be difficult.

You do not need this unless you want to write back to AD. Normally, not the recommended approach.

This should be clarified in the documentation.
