The DMF depends on the lens itself. E.g. the old Minolta 50mm f1.7 allowed for it, the new Sony 50mm f1.8 does not. If the manufacturer inclides it in the feature set, you will get DMF with the LA-EA2.

Another example for DMF working: Tamron 70-300 USD

Yes, although just because it isn't included in the feature set, doesn't mean you won't get it. I picked up the Sigma 18-250 and the focus switch is on it...and DMF doesn't work. The two lenses with the switch don't work, the two without the switch DMF works.
