This question asks about how to address the editors of some question. These can be addressed with @name although the system will not offer completion while typing name.

I wanted to comment to someone that provided a bounty on some other person's Question. Can I address the bounty provider in the same way and rely on that they get an inbox message from the system.

Yes. You can address anyone who is the sole owner of an entry in the revision history. Besides editors, this includes bounty placers, and people who (un)protected. This also includes moderators who (unlocked), closed or reopened, but not ordinary users who cast close/reopen votes.
