At the moment, Geary only harvests contacts from the messages it sees in your accounts.

Or a way to edit raw data files?

The list if contacts is saved in the ContactTable in ~/.local/share/<account>/geary.db. If you feel like writing some SQL, you could merge in additional contacts. But doing so is completely unsupported -- if it breaks, you get to keep both halves.

Geary seems to be missing any form of contact management, and it doesn't appear the contacts are showing up inside gnome-contacts.

The plan is to use libfolks to get contacts from your favorite address book application. See for details.
