Sony ibis question with Tamron or any stabilized lenses

I am just about finished selling my 4/3 gear and am going back to Sony. I just bought the Sony pz 16-35 and a7c, which I like more than I thought I would. I have ordered the a7r5. I never did sell the Sony 24-105 G, glad I held on to it. I intend to buy the Tamron 50-400 but have a concern. I thought the better ibis of the a7r5 would be a real benefit when using the 50-400. I am now wondering if Sony restricts to only lens stabilization because when I put the stabilized 24-105 on the a7c the steady shot icon is greyed out. It does not matter if the lens stabilization is turned on or off.  I assume the 8 stop body stabilization would work better than the lens three stop stabilization. I would not think the camara ibis could only be used for non-stabilized lenses.
