Assuming Kolab2 Server Beta3?
(We are beyond "testing" in that we do have production installations,
but wait for more experience.).

On which host operating system?
Did you freshly install, or did you upgrade?

I just retested this and changing the smarthost works here
and I remember it to work before.

To debug this:
Look for the contents of your ldap:
/kolab# sbin/slapcat
and check for the postfix-relayhost: setting.
If it is there you know that ldap assignment has worked.

What happens next is that kolabd will detect a change
and rewrite the configuration files, using the templates.
Your template /kolab# vim etc/kolab/templates/
should have a macro for 
relayhost = @@@postfix-relayhost@@@

Next you can check /kolab/etc/postfix/
and see if this got expanded.
