Ubuntu is no rolling release. New packages are normally not added to older Ubuntu releases after publication, but are only provided in newer Ubuntu releases.

For gnome-shell-extension-dashtodock in Xenial I can propose two options for you:
1. There is a PPA with a version for Xenial, see https://launchpad.net/~gnome-shell-extensions/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
2. You are welcome to create a bug report requesting that gnome-shell-extension-dashtodock be backported to xenial.
