Yes, the module is working as intended.  From slapo-dynlist(5):

    Any time an entry with a specific objectClass is being returned,
    the LDAP URI-valued occurrences of a specific attribute are
    expanded into the corresponding entries, and the values of the
    attributes listed in the URI are added to the original entry.

So the overlay operates on entries *returned* by a search, and thus it has
nothing to do with the search filter.  At the time of filtering, the
dynamic values are not present in the entry, and thus cannot match.

No, it's pure nonsense.
