Are these standard object fields the only fields that are ignored?

Should a change to any custom lead, contact, or account field trigger a sync to Marketo?

Marketo will sync with any custom field that is visible to the Marketo Sync User in Salesforce. If you make a change to a visible custom field in Salesforce, that should sync down to Marketo unless the field is blocked from updates on the Marketo side.
