Meanwhile, I got some more info from Kadaster. 

For their BRT dataset (topography) they have published a metadata of type void:Dataset, which is being linked to from all resources within this dataset, using the void:inDataset property.

For example http://brt.basisregistraties.overheid.nl/top10nl/id/waterdeel/108697329  resource which refers to http://brt.basisregistraties.overheid.nl/id/dataset/top10nl/2017020100000000

Regarding the use of VoID together with DCAT(-AP) there was an interesting thread on public-lod [1]. There were several suggestions, one being to use dcat:Dataset for the abstract notion of dataset (analogous to frbr:Work), void:Dataset for specific specialisations of the dataset (MARC 21, RDF, ...) analogous to frbr:Expression and then dcat:Distributions for the things you can download [2].
