After a bit more hacking around, I found that the SID 
S-1-5-21-4015118-2039090470-1726288727-4013 (the "group ID" for DOW/U074036) is 
Located under CN=S-1-5-21-4015118-2039090470-1726288727-4013,CN=ForeignSecurityPrincipals,DC=dow,DC=com

I'm not sure what that means, even after Googling "ForeignSecurityPrincipals"....it's like their explaining it in a foreign language.  Perhaps it means something to you?
