An IMAP server with a dedicated mailbox for junk emails might interpret 
moving a message out of this mailbox as a sign that the message wasn't 
junk. There is not dedicated message an email client can send to the 
IMAP server to tell it that something is or is not junk. It can only be 
done implicitly.

Another possibility (I don't know if this happens in practice) is that 
the server keeps an eye on the $Junk/$NotJunk IMAP keywords which are 
kind of standard. MailMate applies/removes these keywords whenever a 
message is moved in/out of the Junk folder.

No, that is the best I can offer you for now. In my opinion it's more 
readable at http://manual.mailmate-app.com, because I don't really like 
the Apple Help system.

The same may be true for the junk folder of each of your accounts. 
Especially if the server “watches” what goes in/out of some 
dedicated Junk folder.
