vCard Editor uses TextFinder for Find and Replace which is introduced in macOS 10.7. You can find a word by name and by other categories with various options including a pattern, and replace it.
Please note that the way of finding string in the address is changed from vCard Editor 2.5.2.

Before 2.5.2 the Address panel is shown when you click the "Replace" button in the Find&Replace bar.
