what happens with waiting tasks when xTickCount overflows ? Do they have the same timing behaviour as the regular have ?

Yes. Delayed tasks that have an overflowed wake time are stored on a separate list. When the timer overflows the lists are swapped, so the overflowed list becomes the current list and the current list the overflow list.
In summary - FreeRTOS automatically handles this for you.
