This is not yet documented, so you have not missed it in the documentation.

A perl script which is to be run as root, from the command line, which  
can be used to expire a Domain Coordinator role for a user for whom  
the homeserver is also a library server for the DC role's domain can  
be retrieved as follows from the LON-CAPA CVS repository:

All on one line ..

wget -O /root/expire_DC_role.pl  

If you still have a directory on your server from which LON-CAPA 2.9.1  
was installed, e.g., /root/loncapa-2.9.1

you could also download expire_DC_role.pl to that directory by  
changing the output (-O flag above)

from /root/expire_DC_role.pl
to /root/loncapa-2.9.1/loncom/build/expire_DC_role.pl

This would place the script alongside the existing  
add_domain_coordinator_privilege.pl script which is used to assign a  
DC role to a user in your domain.

This new script: expire_DC_role.pl will be included with LON-CAPA 2.10.0.

Use perldoc expire_DC_role.pl
to display the documentation for the script, or run it without arguments:

perl expire_DC_role.pl

for guidance on the arguments to use.
