Unfortunately data defined parameters for algorithms are not yet
usable in models (well, they are, it's just that there's no gui to set
them yet) and can currently only be used through the toolbox.
For this reason the old "variable distance buffer" algorithm is still
available for use in models.
Hopefully in 3.2 we get a GUI for using data defined parameters within models.
