See temporary vCards in Address Book Apps
The Address Book application reads and writes from a single pool of addresses each user owns. (Library/Addresses/...). There are a bunch of them that get added, by Mail, I assume. You can view them by adding a new category called TEMPORARY (uppercase is important), then viewing the Temporary addresses category that's already listed in the main window. (That you can't see them already may be some kind of bug.)

Here's the step by step:

In Address Book, create a new item. Then, click on the Categories button. You should see a dialog to set the categories. Click on the round plus (+) button. For the new category, name it "TEMPORARY" - no quotes, all caps. Click OK to save it. Then, cancel the new item. That's it.

Go back to the main screen and change the popdown to Temporary Items. The new all-caps Temporary category won't show up anymore, and you'll get to see more entries here than you did previously. That's why I think this is some kind of bug in Address Book.
