Obviously you set them on some directory and commit the change.

Not on the server, on the root of the repository, which is a directory.

For example:

svn checkout ${REPOSITORY_ROOT_URL} ${WC_PATH} --depth empty
cd ${WC_PATH}
svn propset ${PROPERTY} ${VALUE}
svn commit -m "Commit message"

This will set a property on the repository root directory.

That's completely irrelevant, it has nothing to do with repository contents.
