I am running Exim 4.62 MTA on FBSD 6.0_release.
When I create a new user using useradd, a mailbox file for the new
user is created in /var/mail.
As I am using Maildir with maildirs in /var/mail, I do not want that.
And none of those are documented to do anything of the sort.
I think you should just write your own wrapper.  You could write it as
a wrapper for adduser, or you could make your own version of adduser
(which is just a shell script).

Why not just store your mail in a different directory - say /var/exim? Does it hurt your eyes if it's not called /var/mail?

In login.conf you set user environment path to the user's mailbox (don't know if this is worth anything with Maildir), and configure exim to use that directory - this sounds like the easier solution.
