You mean: a machine that has been issued a NAT-based IP at boot time loads a GUI and envokes an authentication based interface which a user must complet in order to obtain an Internet IP?

Otherwise, the products you speak of probably doesn't interface with AD at the boot time because DHCP leasing happens before AD authentication. In other words, the network traffic during DHCP negotiation does not correspond to "AD domain membership". Instead, the DHCP Server software can probably lookup MAC address of the incoming request and check it against a database of *valid* MAC addresses. But these valid MACs dont necessarily mean that a DHCP request is coming from a particular machine, afterall, one can swap network cards in and out the computer or manually change the MAC address with software.
At some point in the past, Checkpoint was making a DHCP Server software which allowed you to build a dHCP database of IPs.
