Seen flags are kept in a different database, under 
/var/imap/user/X/user.seen.  I presume Cyrus gracefully deals with 
nonexistent folders in the seen/sub files, but I haven't looked at that 
part of the code so conceivably that might be a problem.

If you want to be sure, restore the missing directories from backup and 
delete them the proper way though Cyrus.
