Is it common for a SS officer dagger to be without maker markings ?

There is no "SS officer dagger". There are the modells 33 ("normal" SS dagger, worn by all SS men) and the later 36 chained model which was worn by enlisted men, NCOs and officers only due to certain regulations.

I think you do mean the 36 chained model and yes, these are without maker markings when originally produced per se. When a man who became authorized to wear the 36 model and decided to continue to wear his earlier maker marked 33 model and did buy just a chained scabbard or did grade up his 33 model scabbard just with a chain the now "36" model is with maker mark.

Originally produced 33 models are very seldom without maker mark, mostly the mark was erased, eg. totally ground Rhm.
