    No, we do not, as Azure AD is not a replacement for AD. If you are using Exchange Online, any recipient object will have a DN attribute, but it only exists within ExODS, not Azure AD. And if you are syncing objects from on-premises, you will be able to use the OnPremisesDistinguishedName attribute, which is mapped to the DN value on-premises.
