Small correction:  created while compiling; from the comments in the 
script and the actual lines of code the file appears in:

# The format of current db files is determined using the 'file' command
# with a magic file added for skiplist db, the new format is read from
# a config file usually in /usr/share/cyrus-imapd/rpm/db.cfg, which is
# created while compiling. After converting, the db.cfg file is

# source default db backend config
. $db_cfg
