Is it possible to hide a Teams address from the GAL? #M365AMA

In this episode, the #M365AMA panel discusses the following community question:

“Having issues trying to hide a Teams address from the GAL. I used the gui to do this, checked the settings using PowerShell to make sure they were applied. The Teams address is still showing up in the GAL in both offline and Global Address List. The Teams does not show in Webmail. I tested with a regular distribution list and it disappeared immediately. I tested with another Teams site and the address remains. I waiting after 24 hrs and still no luck. Any ideas?”
