hbvdna alone is a useless test and define nothing about hbv infection status, its use like this is from very old guidelines when hbsag quant and fibroscan was not available

you need in order of importance:
hbsag quantity in iu/ml
fibroscan
hbv genotype
hbeag/hbeab
ast-alt

and then we can see hbvdna correlated to these tests and say if you can clear hbv definitively by therapy or if therapy is mandatory due to liver damage

by the way for you to understand:
hbvdna even if undetactable show nothing about infection because hbv is not in the blood but in the liver and inside liver cells and this is not reflected by hbvdna test in blood but by hbsag quantity in blood
