this is a known problem, reported by several users

To which addressbook you try to import / crate? I assume you try this
inside roundcube.

Be aware that you can't modify the global addressbook from roundcube.
This is a view of your ldap-addressbook (if you activated this). Users
can create their own addressbook where data are stored inside the imap
directory and are accessible via ActiveSync and carddav.

Maybe this helps?

Best Regards
