Yes, that's the way it goes.
When I setup my system (migrated from an ages-old cyrus system using
imapsync), I had first imapsync'd the primary system from the old
system, before setting up the replica. So, when the replica was up and
running, I did a sync_client -u for every user and a sync_client -m for
every bulletin board in the primary system... took a couple of days :)
(I had the replica running during following imapsyncs and the final one,
so of course the changes got propagated automatically then.)
