Ah, it seems I did not make myself clear enough, sorry.  What I was
really hoping for is to see debug logs for the entire process of
handling the UPDATE query that is being denied, not just the last part
where the denial itself is being reported.  These logs would probably
contain interesting bits that could help prove or disprove my Unicode

In any case, since you got the same, unexpected result after starting
over, this looks like a potential bug, but I am afraid I really need to
take a look at your full configuration to make any headway here,
otherwise this will mostly be an exercise in tasseography as it seems to
work as expected for me.  Tracking this further as a GitLab issue makes
most sense to me.  I assume that the configuration you are using is not
deployed in production, but if you nevertheless have any confidentiality
concerns, you can use "named-checkconf -px" to conceal your key secrets
and/or mark the GitLab issue as confidential.  Also feel free to contact
me off-list if that suits you best.


Best regards,
