My client wants a searchable map. I'd like to use Leaflet and Mapbox for the map, but is having an address-search feature limited to geocoding APIs like Google Maps or Mapquest?

You can absolutely have a search feature in your map. As commented by TomazicM:

Have a look at Leaflet geocoding plugins: https://leafletjs.com/plugins.html#geocoding

My favorite is the esri-leaflet-geosearch plugin.
