According to my knowledge you need to have something common to filter out these users

Do you have the list of users? If so, you can feed the input to txt or csv file and get it done.

Yes, you would need one unique attribute of those users like displayname, alias or primary SMTP address.

Then once you have them you can try the below lines. i have given the command to update the mailbox properties as you have not mentioned which attribute you are trying to set.

If you have the names in a txt file, use the following (assuming that you would like to set the customattribute1 to test)

Get-Content users.txt | set-mailbox -customattribute1 test
