I would say "herding" behavior involves herding something. What Steve was describing could more properly be called "herd" behavior. THAT I likely could have bought.
Both terms are used to mean what Steve was talking about - herd behavior or herding behavior. The verb means something different depending on whether it's transitive or not. ("herding sheep" vs "sheep herding") If it doesn't have an object then it's not transitive.
