An entry's DN is not an attribute. In RFC 2849, the
entry's DN is follows "dn:". distinguishedName (RFC2256)
is an attribute type, commonly used as a supertype for other
attributes such as 'member'. Only if you have values
of the distinguishedName will you see it in the returned
set of attributes.

The behavior is quite consist with the technical specification.
