subfolders in public mailboxes

I added this to the configuration:

namespace {
  type = public
  separator = .
  prefix = public.
  location = maildir:/var/mail/public
  subscriptions = no
  list = yes

and I can list maildirs inside these folders correctly. however, I can't
see any subfolders.

The issue seems to be that /var/mail/public dir itself is interpreted as
a maildir directory.

However, what I'd like to do is to have a bunch of directories inside
/var/mail/public and treat them as separate maildirs. (I'd like to use
this to make a few existing mailboxes public)

is this possible?

Best regards,
