Originally the IMAP library had some code to perform client-side 
threading (i.e. Roundcube threads the messages):


I replaced it with server-side threading when I added the threaded 
message view because client-side threading is incredibly slow.

However if you wanted to add that feature then I would start with that 
code. You will need to make it return the threads in the same tree 
structure as roundcube_imap_generic::threads.
