Abstract
Whole egg is a food source of dietary cholesterol and inconsistent research findings exist about the effect of dietary cholesterol from whole egg on blood cholesterol concentration. We assessed the effect of co-consuming cooked whole egg (CWE) on dietary cholesterol absorption from two randomized-crossover studies. For study 1, 16 men consumed raw vegetables with no egg, 75 g CWE, or 150 g CWE. For study 2, 17 women consumed cooked vegetables with no egg or 100 g CWE. Triacylglycerol-rich lipoprotein fractions (TRL) were isolated from collected blood. In study 1, total-cholesterol areas under the curve (AUC)0–10h in TRL were not different but triacylglycerol AUC0–10h in TRL was greater for 150 g CWE vs. 75 g CWE and no egg. Similarly, in study 2, total-cholesterol AUC0–10h in TRL was not different but triacylglycerol AUC0–10h in TRL was greater for 100 g CWE vs. no egg. In both studies, whole egg consumption did not affect plasma total-cholesterol AUC0–10h, while triacylglycerol AUC0–10h was increased. These results suggest that the dietary cholesterol in whole egg was not well absorbed, which may provide mechanistic insight for why it does not acutely influence plasma total-cholesterol concentration and is not associated with longer-term plasma cholesterol control.

I wonder if cooking egg yolk destroys the cholesterol and that if you eat raw yolk might be a different story

I don't think you can make the conclusion that "cholesterol in egg is not well absorbed" from this study. It was only a single test meal, and all meals served contained vegetables, which were probably there to reduce absorption (though that would be a common way to eat a hard boiled egg, if served in a salad).

I also don't understand their conclusions, as it would appear the plasma cholesterol WAS in fact, higher in all the groups that consumed more cholesterol. Here's the full text- Dietary Cholesterol Contained in Whole Eggs Is Not Well Absorbed and Does Not Acutely Affect Plasma Total Cholesterol Concentration in Men and Women: Results from 2 Randomized Controlled Crossover Studies

If you look at the funding, it was sponsored by The American Egg Board. I don't doubt that the conclusions and abstract were made in such a way to conform to the lipid hypothesis, that's still pretty pervasive.
