Not sure what that means: do you mean "load"?

load-file-name is a variable that's supposed to hold the full name of
the file being loaded by `load'. It's going to be nil most of the time.
It's only while a file is being loaded that it assumes a non-nil value.
Try M-x load-file RET /path/to/ox-odt.el RET and see if you get an
error. And maybe update org.
