Can ContactService object in bb::pim::contacts retrieve BBM contacts?

According to the cascades documentation, ContactService can retrieve contacts from various sources such as BBM. Is this correct? I can only retrieve local and active sync contacts.

For BBM contacts, only those contacts that also have your application installed are returned.
