I've found that placing the files inside of the new directory instead of 
the cur forces the files to be indexed as the MUA "sees" them as new 
messages (which in theory, they are to that user/folder).

Not sure if this addresses what you're looking for, but it's how I've 
gotten around the issue for now.
