ldapsearch ... -b "ou=family,ou=private,ou=groups,dn=domain,dn=org" \
-s sub (or maybe -s one, depending on your tree structure) \

Because an entry's DN - and its contents - is not part of the entry.
Just like a UNIX file's name does not occur inside the file.
An entry's RDN - i.e. the part of the DN before first comma - must match
attributes in that entry, but this has nothing to do with the contents
of entries below that entry.
As your search result demonstrates.
