You have a mismatch of parentheses there. The filter should be:
[ Note that one '|' can be followed by a list of one or more filters - it is
not a dyadic operator - see RFC4515 section 3 ]
Ok - glad to hear this; I was rather confused (above string was taken out of a test dump
of a VoIP system and also seen very similar diadics on quite a few deskop/mac products).
So the string itself is bogus to start with.

In principle the entry matches the filter so it should be returned.
However, the '|' (OR) operator poses a significant problem for a server,
particularly where there are a lot of entries and one or more of the attributes

It would be interesting to have more detail on exactly what you did and what
results you found.
Thanks - we’ll dive further and will summarise if something sensible comes out of it - but
it appears that, to start with, various VoIP phones and desktop products, generate an OR
query which is already a bit dubious to start with.
