You really don't need {*$FullName} here -- just use {*$PasswdRead}.
It's the '*' that gives us the full name of the current page.  Thus:

    (:if eq '****' {(substr '{*$PasswdRead}' 0 4)} :) has a password

The problem here is that {=*$FullName} isn't valid syntax,
as it looks as though you're looking for both the currently
displayed page ('*') and the current page in the pagelist ('=').

But this is also a place where you don't need to explicitly add
$FullName -- just use the '=' directly on the $PasswdRead variable.

  (:pagelist group=Public if="eq '****' {(substr '{=$PasswdRead}' 0 4)}" :)
