I should start by saying I never had any particular problems with Google syncing even before the update, so I never used the Google sync behavior patch.

I then went into Contacts on the Pre, chose Preferences & Accounts from the app menu, tapped my Google Mail account and signed in.
One difference I noticed at that stage was that there was no "Syncing Google Mail" notification, it just went back to the Preferences & Accounts screen almost immediately, and when I swiped back into Contacts proper and checked, the two updated contacts were present and correct.
Added after a while:
Sorry, my bad, looks like I was talking through my hat. Apparently the problems people have with Google syncing affect the calendar, not the contacts. Still, as I said, I had no such problems before or after updating to 2.2.4
