%%d/%%n would more sense than either of those, but since these are
indexes only for users who have shared mailboxes to you, %%u alone would
work fine.

Also my guess is that you don't really want /shared, but

(or really, you should be using home directories to avoid that
whole /usr/local/virtual/%u/%n everywhere)
