You're asking two different questions.

1. Does Open MPI use the native verbs interface in OFED?

Yes.

2. Does Open MPI use one of the OFED connection managers?

For IB, Open MPI can use the RDMA connection manager, but it does not have to. It defaults to not using it (instead, it exchanges IB/verbs connection data via TCP sockets).
