Following is another response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

The footnote to table 10.8 (in the BD 2004 report) says that if the birth was in a facility, then it is assumed that a postnatal checkup occurred within two days. That means all women with m15>=20 and <96 should get code 1. Women who did not give a birth in a facility are asked whether they went to a provider for a PNC and about the timing. So women with m52_1<20 & m51_1<=101 will also get code 1.

I agree that the structure of the questions is tricky. I looked at the questionnaire and at who is asked Q428, which is the source of m52.
