I have a small fig tree in my garden. I have a small (cross-lease) section and as I don’t want the tree to get too large I thought it would be good in a tub. Then I thought that if I sink the tub into the ground it would appear to take up even less room. But if I do this will the roots eventually find their ways out through the drainage holes thereby defeating the purpose of root restriction to keep it small? I thought I would also do same with a lemon.

Trees/shrubs in pots grow fine, but as you say will be restricted by root confinement. If you do choose to sink into the ground the roots will try to get out of holes and will anchor the pot and plant to the ground. I would keep them out of the ground and show the pots off.
