There might be some way to integrate it, but it's hard to tell since there
seems to be no documentation in the official manual for those directives.
So I'm really not sure what they're doing.  From the name, though, they
sound like they may be specific to the authentication provider, which
would explain why they're not working.

The LDAP module that comes with WebAuth also doesn't support multiple
servers, although that support should be added.  I'll file a bug about
that internally so that we'll remember.
