Currently Dovecot doesn't provide an IMAP level interface for managing these. There have been two proposed IMAP extensions for these, but nothing really came ouf ot those. It would be possible to add some new IMAP extension to configure the virtual folders, but the main reason why there isn't one is simply because I haven't thought anyone would bother to implement such spec.
