Yes, it will have the same limitations.

The rationale behind them are, that you should _not_ synchronize all
addresses to all devices.
E.g. for us this would cause a download of 14 000 addresses!.
Most of them you would never need.

Therefore I think it would be best to wait, till SOGo Connector supports
searching in enterprise address books.

As a work-around you can use a dummy user in SOGo, which has an address
book shared with any authenticated user.
But you have to keep this address book synchron to your LDAP/DB user
base yourself.
