Org capture does not support executing a function in the ID target spec.

C-h v org-capture-templates RET

target       Specification of where the captured item should be placed.
             In Org-mode files, targets usually define a node.  Entries will
             become children of this node, other types will be added to the
             table or list in the body of this node.

             Most target specifications contain a file name.  If that file
             name is the empty string, it defaults to `org-default-notes-file'.
             A file can also be given as a variable, function, or Emacs Lisp

             Valid values are:

             (file "path/to/file")
                 Text will be placed at the beginning or end of that file

             (id "id of existing org entry")
                 File as child of this entry, or in the body of the entry


You might use the `function' target spec

             (function function-finding-location)
                Most general way, write your own function to find both
                file and location
