The top-level account mailboxes under Sources contain all emails in all mailboxes within that account. To be honest, it shouldn't really be possible to apply rules to these mailboxes since it makes little sense to do so for most users. In fact, most of the panes available are unlikely to be used where a better solution does not exist.

Note that the INBOX of an account is equivalent to the account-named submailbox of the universal Inbox under the Mailboxes section (if you have multiple accounts). Think of it like a disk folder alias.
