The mapping is not just for mapping one field to an other. You can 
replace values, too or do other things (see manpage for more).

You can hardcode the mapping:

map     passwd  gidNumber          "666"

# getent passwd
demo1:*:10002:666:Demo User1:/home/demo1:/bin/sh

And all your domain accounts have primary group 666 :-)
