I assume dnValue is a dn-valued attribute. In such case, it doesn't
any substring search. Note that '(dnValue=*)' is not a substring filter,
a presence filter (matches if an attribute dnValue is present,
regardless of
its value). See for instance RFC 2254:

The search returns success with no results because a malformed filter is
reported as an error, as of RFC 2251 (correct me if I'm wrong):
