Your results are what I expected.  But not what I got.  I stopped postfix, then started MailScanner and postfix came to life.  But I wonder if it's a systemd thing?

I think you may be right that postfix was started during boot up so things worked as advertised.  I dunno.  As long as it works I'm happy.

On another note, what do the ownership and permissions look like on /var/spool/postfix.
By default they were root:root on my box and I had to change the owner to postfix:postfix...
