No, the DOF is not infinite. If it were, the chimney would not be outside of the DOF.

If you focused at the hyperfocal distance you would get more DOF, and you can't have more than infinite.

You can have more than infinity:

infinity + x = infinity

is one of the basic properties of infinity, just as:

zero + x = x

is one of the basic properties of zero.

The distance from any point to infinity is infinite, it doesn't matter where that point is. If the only things in sharp focus are the stars, then the DoF is at least the distance from one of those stars to infinity, which is an infinite distance (whichever star you choose).
