The volume has to be converted to an implicit surface, or actual geo, pr frame, so the toon edge has a concrete finite border, you cannot detect anything like edges on a regular volume.

Bifrost can load .vdb files --> volume to mesh --> out.
So you can either build the mesh or you can use SDF implicit surface to reconstruct the surface, which the toon edge is able to catch.
