DXF doesn't contain separate elevations. The elevation is part of the geometries and not necessarily the same for all points of line. QGIS imports the DXF in 3D. You'll find that the elevation tool will produces a derived Z value when you click on a elevated feature. AFAIK there's current no expression to produce the average elevation of a line geometry (only the z value of a point) - but processing has the "extract z value" tool.
