Any word on when I will be able to add a contact list from members of an O365 group/distribution list which automatically keeps itself up to date like we could in Skype for Business?

Probably never, as the underlying Groups don't support nesting. You can however use Dynamic membership for Teams now: https://office365itpros.com/2018/09/03/dynamic-office-365-groups-teams/

Well, anything is possible if enough people ask for it, that what https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com is for.

 

I think that @Daniel Rogerson is more asking that in chat he can have his contacts populated from a group, like you could in Skype. It's not something I've seen on the roadmap, and I can't immediately find if being asked for by anyone else on uservoice. Add you idea and if enough people also support it then the developers start to take note.
