Unfortunately, I didn't set up the server, and our IT dept is less than
enthusiastic about supporting us on linux.  So, as of right now, I have no idea
where the schema came from, but will try to find out.

However, I did manage to get a command similar to the one you asked for to run
successfully, maybe it can help explain what the setup is:

$ ldapsearch -h ldap.company.com -P3 -x -b "cn=pgpServerInfo,ou=pgp
keys,dc=company,dc=com" -Z -s base cn=pgpServerInfo
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <cn=pgpServerInfo,ou=pgp keys,dc=company,dc=com> with scope base
# filter: cn=pgpServerInfo
# requesting: ALL

# PGPServerInfo, PGP Keys, company.com
dn: cn=PGPServerInfo,ou=PGP Keys,dc=company,dc=com
cn: PGPServerInfo
objectClass: pgpserverinfo
pgpSoftware: OpenLDAP slapd
pgpBaseKeySpaceDN: ou=PGP Keys,dc=company,dc=com
