dynamic uses late-binding. Behind the scenes, it will use reflection to find and invoke the appropriate Add method on the run-time type of the object, with a suitable sprinkling of call-site caching to improve performance.

Simon Cooper published a series of blog posts on that topic back in 2012:
Inside the DLR - Callsites - Simple Talk[^]
Inside the DLR - Callsite binders - Simple Talk[^]
Inside the DLR - Invoking methods - Simple Talk[^]

NB: For the generic collections, you can probably avoid the DLR overhead by using the non-generic interfaces instead:
C#
Type unboundType = typeof(Dictionary<,>);
Type[] typeArgs = { typeof(string), typeof(string) };
Type constructedType = generic.MakeGenericType(typeArgs);

IDictionary instance = (IDictionary)Activator.CreateInstance(constructedType);
instance.Add("1", "2");
