It turns out that the article I had read to import the contacts didn't make
mention of some file in the /workspace/.metadata/.plugins folder. Those Dip
files were causing the client to overwrite the contacts file that I had
migrated. After replacing those files as well as the names.nsf, I think the
issue has been resolved.

here is the article that was most helpful..

Recent Contacts are pretty important to our users, and I see why having
them might cause headaches, but I don't hold the keys so.... /shrug

Thanks for the reply!

subject: Notes Client losing Recent Contacts after install and import

(Client version 8.5.1)

Had to put together a new PC for a user and grabbed their names.nsf file
from the old box. Most of the list was Recent Contacts/History. The initial
import of the file went file, but today the user has lost all the recent
contacts and it's been replaced by only the people he interacted with
today... The user hasn't deleted any contacts either.

Any ideas what I'm missing? Thanks in advance!

Sorry, can't help you. Why? Because we turn off recent contacts. And
clear all recent contacts stored for each person. We do this because if I
send you an email with an invalid address for a coworker, or a customer
which several of you email, and this gets shared around (via 'reply to
all' and that genre), then all of you now have that invalid email address
in your recent contacts and our help desk gets calls wanting to know why
they can no longer email this person. (it keeps using the invalid address
in recent contacts instead of the valid one in either the corporate
address book or any entry in your static people in your individual
contacts)

Is it possible that this person had such an invalid email address in their
recent contacts and either they, or someone helping them, googled it and
saw the documentation on clearing recent contacts? Performed that action
but did not turn off collecting new recent contacts?
