Got it. Posting here the answer for future readers.

There are two things that have to be done:
- set the id3v2 metadata of the target AVFormatContext
  const AVDictionaryEntry *e = NULL;
  while ((e = av_dict_iterate(metadata, e))) {
    av_dict_set(&fmtctx->metadata, e->key, e->value, 0);

- When writing the header, set the appropriate option (in this case write_id3v2 for the ADTS encoder)
  AVDictionary *opts = NULL;
  av_dict_set_int(&opts, "write_id3v2", 1, 0);
  ret = avformat_write_header(encoder->fmt, &opts);
