From the imapd.conf man page.
postuser: <none>
Userid used to deliver messages to shared folders. For example, if set
to "bb", email sent to "bb+shared.blah" would be delivered to the
"shared.blah" folder. By default, an email address of "+shared.blah"
would be used.

You create the shared folders at the same level as user. not in a
subdirectory of shared.
