[Dovecot] not creating homedirs when using maildir format

I'm in the process of setting up dovecot, but for some reason, it's not
creating home directories if they don't already exist.
I have the following line in dovecot.conf:
default_mail_env = maildir:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
I have set permissions on /home to allow everyone full access, so creating
directories in /home by dovecot non-root processes shouldn't be a problem.
If I instruct dovecot to use mbox format, directories are created without a
problem. The problem only seems to exist with maildir.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks and regards,
