We do not provide migration script for netgroups however it is very simple to create a script that would recreate netgroups using IPA command line.
The reason why we do not do netgroup migration automatically is because it is a good time to reconsider now netgroups are used in your environment.
For example if you use netgroups to group hosts we recommend you creating a host group for those hosts. Each host group by default has an automatically created netgroup with the same name. This can be turned off but out of box every host group creates a netgroup.
If you use netgroups for users consider switching to user groups rather than using netgroups for users. Using user groups is more flexible and preferred method.
Also see chapter 7. It has examples of the scripts that can help you to migrate netgroups.
