As Sven said, if Imap uses getpwnam or any of the standard Posix
password database access function, nsswitch and nss_ldap will return the
users from the LDAP.
'getent passwd' shows all my local and ldap users.

I use pkgsrc and it doesn't provide any switch for PAM.
I edited imap-2004e/src/osdep/unix/Makefile to replace 'PASSWDTYPE=std'
Looking at pkgsrc's makefile
I would say imap-uw is built with:
I've just noticed imap-2004e/Makefile also defines the PASSWDTYPE variable.
Maybe I should change that one too?
I there a way to see that is supported? Imapd greets me with:
OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS AUTH=LOGIN]
