they are defined in the server instance. keep in mind that a single "physical" ldap can have multiple server configurations. So a typical use case might involve separate server configurations with different basedn, bindingdns, etc for provisioning and functionality needing less elevated privileges.

You mean this setting field "Service Account Binding Credentials" ..? I thought it is just for advanced search which requires authentication!.. There should be a better caption for this, like a line stating that "require for provisioning" or " require for creating or editing LDAP accounts" would do.

I want to enter "cn=Directory Manager" as the LDAP admin's DN and password as password

Yes. Thats the setting. I would also suggest a validation warning on the ldap user admin page that came up if a binding dn and pwd isn't present in the server thats selected.
