Hmm, on a clean 18.04 install I see you are right. The built-in Ubuntu
Dock (which is a pre-configured version of dash-to-dock I think) apparently
doesn't have an entry there. My suggestion is useless in this case then,
Are you able to get a terminal login for that user? Via ssh or whatever?
If so then you may be able to disable the extension using
gnome-shell-extension-tool as described in
though I have not tried that myself.
