I downloaded 2.0.1 and tried your configuration against it, and yes
indeed, the "*" feature wasn't supported back then and causes a processing
error when trying to configure libopendkim to do what you're after.

You can do it with 2.0.1, but you have to set SignHeaders to list all of
the header fields you want to sign, including yours but also including all
