Yes, LDAP import will overwrite the end user DB. Users that do not exist in LDAP will be purged. If you have users for applications, it is best to use the CUCM application user type, where supported. Otherwise, you'll have to create those users in LDAP so they are not deleted.

You do not need a license for this feature.  The most common issue seen is the "garbage in, garbage out" effect.  If user accounts are not up to date or there are application user or test accounts in the OU(s) that you import from then those users will be seen in the directory and any bad user information will be seen in the directory as well.
