Why don't you copy over the mail via IMAP too? (imapsync etc.)

I think the quota reflects only IMAP changes on the mailbox and not 
those low level actions. As you need recontruct to tell cyrus there have 
been low level changes of the mailbox structure, you need to tell cyrus 
by quota -f that mail volume changes have happend on the mailbox.
