I'm sure this will be completely worthless to you - but I found the following interesting blog:
Also - you are aware that the user can configure this option in the client (options -> phones) right?
Another user posted the following email from Microsoft:
I have checked various options and found that it’s possible to hide the department and company if we make some changes in the Address book databases(RTCab and RTCab1) in the SQL but it’s not supported to make those changes as that might cause some other critical issues in the Lync 2010 Environment. As those are the default attributes of the address book in Lync and it depends on the AD attributes present in the user properties. We can hide the organization tab which shows up in contact card of the contact in Lync client by applying the client policy. Tools in the resource kit are not recommended in production environment also with no support from us since those are not successfully tested, as we might get weird results by using those.

As they said,there are lots of options to hide the mobile number and home number to Lync contacts.
1)In Lync Client option,highlight "phones" and clear the tick off "include in my contacts card" follow up "mobile phone" and "home phone".
2)You can change privacy relationship of your contacts to the "External contacts" or "Blocked contacts",by default your colleagues will be set to "Colleagues" group and the federated partner contacts will be set to "External contacts" .Details you can check Understand presence and privacy relationships .
3)Use the latest ABSconfig tool(Download here) with fully patched Lync server and Clients or running scripts as above guys advised.(Note:Operation on SQL database directly is not supported please take the risk by your own when perform this. )
