I’m not quite sure whay you would want the location of LCB to a moving reference point.
Yes, LCB to the midship makes sense. But using a reference point of the WL of any draught (not DWL) makes no sense, since it provides no information at all.

Even for yachts the midship location is a fixed location. The exact location can be different (point of largest beam on the DWL, or the position of the maximum cross section area for example) but it is a fixed location, not moving with an increasing draught.

Can you perhaps quote exactly what your book is saying about this?
