My understanding is that `nnmail-split-methods' which you're using in
your config is only for the `nnmail' backend, which (confusingly
enough), can use IMAP as a source of mail.  But if you are using IMAP,
you want to look instead at (info "(gnus) Client-Side IMAP Splitting").
Other than that I see no reason why the agent shouldn't work.
