[Dovecot] ACL problem

I seem to have a problem with ACLs. I'm trying to use them on shared folders 
those work fine without it. But as soon as I enable the plugin and create the 
dovecot-acl files, they disappear. I used strace to see if there's a problem 
with file permissions, but it looks like Dovecot doesn't even attempt to 
access the dovecot-acl file in the maildir, only the dovecot-acl-list files.

However, it does look for dovecot-acl files in users' home directories. Maybe 
the ACL plugin is enabled only for the private mailboxes, not for the public 
ones, but I want right the opposite. How can I achieve it?

Please find my dovecot config below.
