[keycloak-user] Can Keycloak simulate LDAP server?

The scenario where users are created in Keycloak and then synchronized to
LDAP is clear. It is good documented.
But what about scenario, if LDAP server setup should occur months later
after Keycloak setup?
Would it be possible to synchronize existing Keycloak users including their
password to LDAP for example on successful login?
