I’ve only ever used contacts, I’ve never used the address book, so why would it be in address book when I’ve never used it?  
Because Outlook is perverse in the way it stores contacts.

For the Google Contacts that I just Synced to Outlook, all appear in Address Book but none appear in Contacts.  And don't ask me to explain why, as I really do not know, as I haven't used Outlook as an email client on a daily basis in years but have it so that I can do quick testing (like now) when I need to.

If someone else can give a clear explanation of the Contacts versus Address Book split under Outlook I'd love to hear it.
