you can use cyradm with setmetadata: .  It works the sameway on 3.0, despite the fact the 3.0's documentation is silent on this.

When making chnages on master, e.g. updating the documengation, please verify if they are relevant for 3.0 and in such case backport them.  

There is no \spam special use, it is \junk .
