I'm not sure I understand exactly what functionality you're looking for. Do you perhaps mean you want to create a folder that isn't synced automatically via the "Selective Sync" feature, or via the "Smart Sync" feature?
In any case, there isn't anything like that, but please feel free to elaborate and I'll be happy to pass this along as a feature request.
