entryDN is an operational attribute, so it is only returned if you explicitly ask for it in the search request. E.g.

ldapsearch -xLLL -h ldap.uio.no -b "dc=uio,dc=no" -s base "*" entryDN

Besides, for an unique identifier, what suites better entryUUID or entryDN ?

I plan to write an search interface and was thinking about tracking
results ...

Many thanks
