Will the D5300 AF on all newer lenses without an AF motor?

I know it doesn't have the focus motor built in, but which lenses exactly will that affect? Will lenses like a Sigma 70mm F2.8 or the Nikon 35 F1.8DX be fully functional? I later plan to buy the Tamron 70-200. Do all these have a focus motor inside, or is it MF only?

Another question I have is, does the 5300 have AF adjust in case I see BF/FF?
