"KB4578579 - Improvement: Availability Group listener without the load balancer in SQL Server 2016, 2017 and 2019".
Does it mean we have DNN listener support starting SQL 2016 SP3?
Can we create DNN listener after installing SP3 on existing SQL 2016 Azure VM's?

Yes, that is what it indicates in the KB is that you are allowed to use DNNs in SQL 2016 SP3.
