The default for config_dynamic_debug when DEBUG is defined is
to output the message equivalent to when DEBUG is defined and
config_dynamic_debug is not.

That's a good thing and has been the general default since 2011.

You want to override that, I suppose that's OK but it's

dynamic_debug: make dynamic-debug supersede DEBUG ccflag

If CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG is defined, honor it over DEBUG, so that
pr_debug()s are controllable, instead of always-on. When DEBUG is
