I don't know of any way to do what you want.  Interesting idea though.

Well, he can set the vacation himself, and he can remove it himself, so
"you" don't need to pay attention at all, only the user needs to pay
attention to the dates they are gone and dates they return.

To do this effectively, you would need to do this at the mail system
level beyond the user's control.  Sork/Ingo both work at the user
level, so the user could circumvent this setup and get away with
whatever he/she wants...

> Would you please advise me how to handle them with LDAP not use .forward ?

Configure it for ldap instead.
