Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

You are correct. The unadjusted odds ratio comes from a logit regression with only one independent or predictor variable. If control variables are included then the odds ratio for the variable of interest is described as an "adjusted" odds ratio. Of course, the adjusted odds ratio will be different for different choices of control variable(s).
