Unfortunately I don't even think it is even possible. I have never used nandroid, but does it normally restore contact joins? Because if it does not it means that it doesn't even backup that information...

Well a nandroid is a full dump of the nand so the data is there somewhere, if I restored it onto the phone it would be indentical to how I left it a couple of days ago and the joins would be intact, so if you know where the data is the phone you should be able to find the same files inside the nandroid zip

Well if the data is there it could be used to restore only the contact joins. I will look into it, but I can't make any promises.
