*/* and */child::* are the same (because */* includes a child:: by default)

This reads as "any child node of the context node (*) that has any child
node (child::*) which has a local name of $v ([local-name()=$v])"

> read as I only want */* where they have a child named $v.

Do you want grandchildren of the context node called $v? If so,

Children of the context node called $v would be *[local-name()=$v]

Children of the context node (themselves having a child called $v) would be
*[child::*[local-name()=$v]] or child::*[child::*[local-name()=$v]]

Kind regards,
