I ran into this as well. There is a DSSSL setting that needs
to be changed to get the behavior you want (at least this
resolved the issue for me) :
In the default (flag set to "t"), the entity declaration is
kept as sdata; meaning that (hopefully!) the browser/client,
for example, knows what to do with the entity when it sees it.
Changing the flag causes the tools to expand/change the entity
into some character(s) at build time.
Flag is found in <dsssl_location>/docbook/html/dockbook.dsl
