Any mail sent out of a sieve script ends up calling the local sendmail
binary to send the mail. In the case of postfix of course, sendmail is a
dummy program to inject messages into postfix's mail queue.
I don't know enough about postfix to directly answer your question, but
perhaps since sieve is calling sendmail to inject mail into the queue,
that mail is not subject to the sender_canonical_maps processing that
occurs over a regular SMTP connection from the user's email client.
