login.conf(5) is indeed the configuration file for login(1) which is
not used sshd(8) with the default configuration. You have to use the
`UseLogin' option described in sshd_config(5) :

             Specifies whether login(1) is used for interactive login ses-
             sions. The default is ``no''. Note that login(1) is never used
             for remote command execution. Note also, that if this is
             enabled, X11Forwarding will be disabled because login(1) does not
             know how to handle xauth(1) cookies. If UsePrivilegeSeparation
             is specified, it will be disabled after authentication.

Apart from that, `AllowUsers' and `AllowGroups' have been mentioned
multiple times, but it might be easier to use `DenyUsers' and
`DenyGroups' options for the described situation.
