I'm at 200 dwellers population, and running well.

I had just one lunchbox since, but I was wondering if I can still find legendary dwellers inside or they are excluded since I'm at max population?

Has anyone experienced this?

Yes, they can.

If you get a legendary dweller card, they'll come and line up outside, you just won't be able to let them in.

In order to let them in, remove a dead dweller, lowering your population to 199. As far as I'm aware, they'll wait indefinitely.

    They run off temporarily and come back when the emergency is over.

    Note that you can only have 10 dwellers waiting outside your vault. If you already have 10 dwellers waiting outside your vault, you can't open lunchboxes.

Ok, I have some proof of that as well. The dweller isn't legendary, but this proves that they can still be in lunchboxes.
