Read the slapo-dynlist(5) manpage. It says quite clearly:

The optional URI restricts expansion only to entries matching
the DN, the scope and the filter portions of the URI.

Nothing else in the URI is valid.

Oh... I've read this manpage few times, but I missed that paragraph, sorry.

Note that this is by design: the reason is that:

1) we don't want to allow arbitrary URLs

2) we don't want to duplicate all functionalities of other modules (in a moment users would ask for: arbitrary authentication mechanisms, detailed handling of errors, timeouts, etc.); if you need to that, you can configure an instance of back-ldap that handles requests for the remote database. Back-ldap, by design, already handles all these functionalities.
