That page doesn't (and shouldn't) have a Dynamic VLAN part.

Release 3.0.x can only use winbind to do the authentication: pass a
username and a password-hash-thingy to Active Directory and ask if this
combination is correct.

Release 3.1.x/4.0.x add possibilities to find the groups of the user (I
believe, it might be possible this was only proposed but not yet added).
You can still use the LDAP-protocol to search for the groups of a user
to base the VLAN on that, but that is not related to the winbind
authentication process.
