So some axis that the Guardian 3D is meant to control will get left out.
Guard 2D/3D will in fact control all three of these flight controls. Long ago I posted numerious post of me flying my Lil Banchee with Guardian in both 2D and 3D modes. It has Ail., Evevator,Rudder and Throttle which Guard. does not contriol.

FYI Unit I preordered on MArch 15 arrived today ,ones I preordered on Apr.6 are on the way.

Good explanation of Trans. controled gain settings here
I worded it "wrongly": Guardian 2D/3D will try to control all 3 axes, but in a 3 channel elevon plane (2 control surface servos), 1 of the axes that Guardian controls will not have any servo to connect to, so Guardian will do the calculations, but as far as I can tell, Guardian has no servo/control surface to move to make the corrections in that axis.
