There are the communities which don't specifically offer tent space or put you in contact with a particular member but you can ask if anybody in that community knows of a place you can camp and you might be offered a place or at least guided to a reasonably priced camping site which is local to them.

I guess you are referring to this bit of your reference and it is certainly an interesting development:-
Tent Space Map - ADVrider

It's also interesting how you use the word "overlander" which tends to have a much wider meaning than certain other terminology; in particular, it is often used to mean those who travel using more than 2 wheels. There was quite a bit of discussion in here a while ago about changing the layout of the 4 wheel section, but I don't remember this subject being mentioned.

And that is probably the nearest equivalent forum in the HUBB; perhaps the communities are most often used to seek assistance when things go wrong, while the ADV site offers information that can help directly with planning; on the other hand, there are offers of camping space and all sorts of other, related, offers (such as employment of HUBBers by HUBBers) in various parts of this site.
Here's just one, recent, example of generous ad hoc offers that come along in reponse to particular travel plans:-
