cyr_dbtool itself should not update the mupdate master. I do not know if
the mailbox entry would be removed on the master the next time the backend
updates it (such as on restart).

You could remove the entry on your mupdate master with cyr_dbtool, but it's
probably safer to re-add the mailbox on the backend (with cyradmin) that
master is pointing the mailbox to, which should bring state back in to sync
with master, and then delete (with cyradmin) or xfer as appropriate.
