To have the mail routed to the Bulk folder, you'd probably want to use
sieve scripts, such as those at .  I don't know if
'global sieve scripts' are possible.

To have the entries cleared periodically, use an entry in
/etc/cyrus.conf in the events section, such as

# Purge trash from folders
purgebulk    cmd="/usr/sbin/ipurge -d 30 -f user.%.Bulk" at=0200
