using address-extensions for storing in special folders

I have a cyrus imap server 2.2.12 behind a postfix server.
The postfix server rewrites incoming addresses according some
policy rules. The most common case is adding an address extension
to an email address, so kleiner at sometimes becomes
kleiner+internal at

Postfix delivers the emails to the local IMAP server via LMTP socket.

My question is: is there a way to configure the IMAP server, so that
mails to kleiner+internal at are automatically stored
in the INBOX/internal folder of user "kleiner"? 

I guess I can solve this with sieve, but is there a "native" feature
in the IMAP server doing this?

Thanks and regards
