[Dovecot] PLAIN-MD5 password scheme with salt?

I'm storing passwords as MD5 hashes in a MySQL database and have 
specified "default_pass_scheme = PLAIN-MD5" in dovecot-sql.conf.

Can Dovecot append or prepend a salt to a password before hashing them? 
Because without salt the plaintext passwords can be restored from the 
MD5 hashes using rainbow tables.
