I doubt this is possible without changing the code.

It displays what is stored in the database (JIRAISSUE respectively COSTUMFIELDVALUES which is the ID) only when you search (pick) a user the application looks in CWD_USER where user name and email is stored.

But in view screen, Full user name is displayed.

you're right under the people section the user names are displayed. Even the standard user picker (Reporter /assignee) have in Edit Screen the names displayed but not cutomfields user picker.

I haven't seen a way to change that behavior for customfield user picker.

I also have this problem and its confusing to users. I expected that onscreen behaviuor of custom user picker fields would be the same as standard user picker fields such as Assignee and Reporter.
