Ok, I see.
But I wasn't able to find any source file in cyrus source tree that reads that config option! Since it actually results correctly used, I expected that at least one source file (maybe related to the <service> module) loads and evaluates it.
Or am I missing something?

options in imapd.conf are used by multiple cyrus daemon.
They can be named


where <service> is one of the cyrus daemon

Then if you have

admins: foo
imap_admins: bar

sieve will use the global option with value "foo"
and imapd will use the more specific to itself "bar"
