As far as I know, Dataverse uses DDI 2.0 or in more recent versions DDI 2.5 (however, I found this issue which seems that there is a problem with DDI 2.5 conform output of a codebook).

Are there any plans to use DDI 3.2 at some point in the future?

Thank you!

Several groups within the Dataverse community have been talking about upgrading the DDI metadata schema to the latest version, and it's definitely something that we are interested in - and, more generally, we are interested to review and improve metadata support and facilitate data quality and interoperability. We are currently in conversations about this, and the plan to upgrade it but we don't know when yet. We need to make an assessment of what it will take to support this change. We'll keep all of you posted.
