This seems to be a common problem with Samsung 4.1.1 -> 4.1.2 upgrades. It seems to have hit a fair number of SGS3 users, including my wife. It seems like the contacts aren't "registered" properly after the upgrade. For any individual contact even the tiniest of edits (which you can then undo) seems to fix the issue.
My workaround was (only works for contacts you get from Google).
1. Export all contacts to a file (vCard, IIRC).
2. Import that file into your Google contacts, duplicating every contact.
3. Go to google.com/contacts and merge duplicates.
4. Re-sync all of your contacts from Google (slow)
There were a few merge glitches and a few contacts not fixed, but it worked well enough to deal with the rest manually.
