Deploying Skype for Business 2016 client - change default username from "username@domain.com"?

I am deploying Microsoft Skype for Business Basic in my organization.

Users are licensed in O365, but their Exchange mailbox will still be on-premises.

I've configured a silent install by extracting they above link using the .exe parameter, and then running the setup.exe /admin to generate a silent install MSP file, but no other configurations.

When I deploy the client, I notice after a user opens it, it defaults to "username@domain.com" in the sign-in address box.
Is there a way to make that a bit more friendly for the end-user so that it defaults to their own e-mail address/UPN? Maybe a registry trick?
I see new values created like "ServerUsername" in a test client after I login, under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\lync

And, if it can default to their company e-mail, will it auto-sign in, even if the login is going to be their sync'd O365 credential (using dirsync, no sso implemented currently).

You need the SIP address populated, as detailed by Johan here: https://365lab.net/2014/11/15/sign-in-address-not-auto-populated-in-lync-client-lync-online/
