I don't think so. This only affects cache records. Our uuidmode patch only 
calculates the md5 for the message body. The "make_md5" David mentioned is a 
completely separate script he runs and maintains to calculate the md5's of 
messages and stores the values separately to the existing cyrus structures.

At least I believe that's the case, I'm sure David will comment.
