I don't get what you mean.  You should be able to list all groups with
members with:

getent group

If you want to filter out groups for just one user you can do this:

getent group | grep username

But it will still list all the users that are also members of the same
group.  If you are using winbind, you can also try this:

Wbinfo -r username

Which will return just the gids of all the domain groups a user is a
member of, but I don't know if it returns local groups or not.
