Yes, it can be done with the Python plugin. In fact, a little extension
of this functionality is even shipped as an example script:

This script puts a further constraint on the messages to be marked as
read: They must be older than 28 days. If that is not wanted, just
remove all the lines mentioning "quicksearch".

This version of the script considers everything below the currently
selected folder or mailbox. Letting it behave differently (i.e. always
consider the whole mailbox of the selected folder, or consider all
mailboxes irrespective of the selected folder/mailbox) would require
minor adjustments.
