What about it? LMTP is a protocol, not a destination. Cyrus's lmtpd
delivers to Cyrus's mailstore.
Older Cyrus had a "deliver" program which did the same thing, and
fell back to standard Unix mailboxes under /var/spool/mail if the
user didn't have a Cyrus inbox, but I don't know if 2.x's lmtpd does
this and I'm quite certain it does not support e.g. Maildir delivery
to home directories.
