I'm sorry you cannot use the mDNS plugin with this topology.

In the readme:

go to line 29.

As you can see the mDNS plugin expects the OLSR routers to be the core
of the network and the end users with Avahi not speaking the OLSR

The users are in a network announced by HNA from the OLSR router that
captures the mDNS traffic forward it to the other routers where other
users are present in the delegated HNA networks. This is the idea
behind the plugin, it is not for the avahi on the routers it self.

I suggest your read the README. If you still have doubt also this
document goes really into the details:

feel free to write back on the mailing list if you have further questions :)
