The GAL only displays all Mail Enabled Users, Contacts, Groups, Rooms and Public Folders that resides in your exchange. So if you create a Customized address list within Exchange then the answer is YES they will be displayed in the GAL. If you create a Customized address list on a client machine then NO they will not be displayed in your GAL.

Hope this helps!!!
