Yes, but you'll need to write the database conversion yourself.  The
osgpagelod example may help a bit as this converts LODs to PagedLODs.

3GB is not overly large, and the reason for PageLOD existance is
helping handle this and much large scenes.

There every chance of a solution in the OSG, first up you load the
data, for instance do it incrementally, and then to generate the LOD
levels as required.  This is a tasks for you to work out though - the
OSG is a scene graph rather than a modelling tool.
