Let us see what we find in Musnad Ahmad, 9/496 & in urdu translation, 3/300

5684 – حَدَّثَنَا عَفَّانُ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحَكَمِ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ أَبِي رَبَاحٍ قَالَ: كَانَ رَجُلٌ يَمْدَحُ ابْنَ عُمَرَ قَالَ: فَجَعَلَ ابْنُ عُمَرَ يَقُولُ: هَكَذَا يَحْثُو فِي وَجْهِهِ التُّرَابَ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: (1) ” إِذَا رَأَيْتُمُ الْمَدَّاحِينَ فَاحْثُوا فِي وُجُوهِهِمُ التُّرَابَ “

A’ta bin Rabah says that Once a person praised ibn Umar, so he started putting soil/mud in his mouth ; and then He said: I heard Holy Prophet asws saying that if someone praises you, fill his mouth with soil

Ibn Hibban included this Narration in His Saheeh, 13/84; and Researcher Sheikh Shoaib termed Chain Saheeh. Though in Musnad Ahmad, he stated that It is Saheeh with support of other Narrations

Hafiz Haithmi included this Narration in Majma-uz-Zawaid, 8/117; and said

رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ وَالطَّبَرَانِيُّ فِي الْكَبِيرِ وَالْأَوْسَطِ، وَرِجَالُهُ رِجَالُ الصَّحِيحِ

It was narrated by Ahmad and Tabarani, and Its Narrators are Narrators of Saheeh Narration

Narration is quite clear. I have yet to see any brother from AhluSunnah acting on This sunnah though
