Here is a response from one of our DHS Sampling experts Ruilin Ren, that should answer your question.

Attached is a one page note on weight variable rescaling when pooling data from different surveys. The DHS recode data file presents a normalized weight which is a relative weight. The attached note explains how to de-normalize weights for pooled data or for estimating totals.

I hope this helps.
