  No.  It's part of the LDAP query.

  In order to avoid external users logging in with names that are valid
LDAP queries, the untrusted user input is escaped before it is passed to
the LDAP module.

  See the *rest* of the debug output for the sequence of string
expansions.  It looks like you're calling the LDAP module twice, and
using the output of the first query as part of the wuery string for the
second query.
