It should say:

Example 3: A file containing a base-64-encoded value

version: 1
dn: cn=Gern Jensen, ou=Product Testing, dc=airius, dc=com
objectclass: top
objectclass: person
objectclass: organizationalPerson

Notes:

There is no section numbering in this RFC, hence the "GLOBAL".

Note 10 in "Notes on LDIF Syntax" says that base64-encoded values are subject to the same folding rules explained in Note 2. Note 2 requires folded lines to begin with a space character.

This modification was introduced passing from draft-good-ldap-ldif to RFC 2849.
