In SharePoint 2013, is it possible to give domain users permissions to a site without their profile being in the User Profile Sync set of users?

We are seeing a couple of issues - the users don't appear in the people picker so site admins cannot find them -

How do site owners add users when not synced?

We also see prompts for authentication for accounts that are not in the profile sync database

Yes. Should not be a problem. The user profile service application is also not available in SharePoint foundation and there you can also just give domain users permissions in SharePoint.
