Note that xdmp:directory-properties() does not return the properties of 
a directory. Instead, that function returns the properties of the 
documents in a directory. See 
  - "Returns a sequence of properties documents, one for each document 
in the specified directory that has a corresponding properties document."

The Developer's Guide has more information about properties.

You might create a metadata document in each directory, using a 
well-known URI and element-root (and possibly a collection). You might 
also set the desired property on document(s) in your directory, and use 
xdmp:directory-properties() to query for it.
