That's the setting you want. In IMAP / dovecot context, "mailbox" means "folder".

The basic directory structure for an account, with INBOX and the various mailboxes ("folders") as defined in your namespace / mailbox configuration where auto = [create|subscribe], will still be created automatically as soon as the first message arrives.
