Thanks for your posting here.
Based on my knowledge, this behavior is expected. Basically, Outlook Web
Address resolves names only with the Global Address List (GAL) and your
mailbox Contacts folder, and cannot choose or search from the list of
public folder contacts.
More information is here:
192775 XCLN: Outlook Web Access Cannot Use Contacts in Public Folder
To work around this issue, you may move the contacts to the primary contact
folder or Active Directory. To add large bulk of contacts into AD, you can
use CSVDE to import them from a .csv file.To do this, refer to the
Step 1. Create a .csv file with the proper attributes.
Step 2. Use csvde.exe to importcreate the user accounts. To do so, use the
"Csvde -i -f import.csv"
For more information, please refer the following KB article:

Hope this helps. If anything is unclear about the about suggestions, feel
free to let me know. Have a nice day!

| When users visit a public folder through OWA and open a distribution
| all the e-mail addresses for users who are saved as full contacts

| I can fix this? Currently, almost all the distribution lists on the
| are built from contacts located within the same public folder. (That way,

| Any ideas?
