Fair question, but it seems to be working okay:

My observation about this would be that /etc/MailScanner/conf.d/README 
contains the comment:
# NOTE: If you change the value of a %variable% then you must redefine all
# the settings that use that %variable% here, as the %variable%
# substitutions are done when the files are initially read, not later when
# settings are looked up when MailScanner is processing messages.

I wonder if that is in fact the problem here?
