See below pic adding a contact to serveradmin\ Companyname\ Exch2016_Base\ Hosted Organizations\ DomainName \ Contacts
works but when you pull up the new contact added in the Global Address Book on outlook or OWA and want to add that contact to your personal contact list the email is not firstname.lastname@example.org but test@DomainName.com, in which the DomainName is equial to the company domain name you are hosting on Exchange 2016
and this is was it looks like when adding that contact to your personal contacts, it shows the email address associated with the domain you are hosting and not the domain you put in for the contact email.
Exchange contacts is technically a form of “forward” in exchange it self.
It basically makes the contact with the name email@example.com –> firstname.lastname@example.org (this is simply how Exchange handles contacts, it would do the same if you make them in ECP where it would use your default AD Domain behind the @).
This is generally used not for address book purpouses but for getting exchange permissions such as calendar access or distribution list members and so on.
