I haven't come across this before, but the obvious place to look is in 

# Do you want to add the Envelope-To: header?
# This can be useful for tracking spam destinations, but should be
# used with care due to possible privacy concerns with the use of
# Bcc: headers by users.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
