I am not the OP but interested in unexpunge as well so I tried . You are
su -s /bin/sh cyrus -c '/path/to/unexpunge -lv
but from the man pages, for example
squatter [ -C config-file ] [ -r ] [ -s ] [ -a ] [ -v ] mailbox...
unexpunge [ -C config-file ] -a [ -d ] [ -v ] mailbox
they are inconsistent WRT usage and the unexpunge man page doesn't
mention anything about the internal syntax.
