This is exactly what was expected.
Dovecot userdb doesn't know about your user specific quota_rule.

Dynamic extra fields like "userdb_quota_rule" from SQL would not
work with a static userdb, since static db is only able to return
static extra fields.

You will need to use userdb driver = sql to fetch quota_rule from SQL.

If it works, the following command should show the user's quota rule:
doveadm user test at test.com
