If Directory Access, Services, LDAPv3 (plug-in) has an AD Directoryh Domain (node) enabled, and that same node is in the Authentication list, and the DCs of the forest are not behind a firewall, can an OS X app (a daemon specifically, in case it matters) pass an AD (short) account name and password to AD, and, if authentication is successful, have returned the short group name -- without having the AD plugin even enabled? (in 10.4.8).
