Yes and no. The default range for dynamically allocated uids is defined
in /etc/login.defs.

Which won't help you, because the LDAP tree(*) may be administered
from a place where there is a different login.defs. Or the tool
ignores login.defs outright. Or there is no login.defs to start with.
LDAPAdmin.exe, web-based IDMs, you name it.


(*) Or any kind of user database that is made available to multiple
systems.
