You can make non FEATURE(`mrs_cyrus.m4') use non built in 
smmapd socket location by defining CYRUS_SMMAPD_SOCKET before the 
feature e.g.

You can test replies sendmail gets from smmapd by using the command below:
echo '/map cyrus rod' | sendmail -bt

I think you have chhosen RTCyrus2 variant that:
IF    OS account exists    THEN delivers via local mailer
ELSIF cyrus mailbox exists THEN delivers via cyrus* mailer
ELSE  bounces message
