It is, evolution is linked against the Berkeley DB libraries (older version)
and to confirm:

$ file evolution/local/Contacts/addressbook.db
evolution/local/Contacts/addressbook.db: Berkeley DB (Hash, version 7, native byte-order)

So in principle berkely db utilities should be able to access the addressbook.
Haven't tried though...
