Global Address Lists contains everything. That is the reason why it is said to be global.

All mail enabled objects in AD is part of your Global Address List by default.

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!!!
