Actually, the % should not be escaped with a slash, but with another %.
The problem here isn't regex escaping, but xlat that tries to expand the
% variable.

The following piece of code should work:

  if (User-Name =~ /bla-bla\/([^%%]+)%%kroenchenstadt.de/) {
    update control {
      User-Name := "%{1}@kroenchenstadt.de"

There is no need to escape the hyphen in regex either, so I've removed
that escape too. I've tested it with 3.0.10.
