There will only be connections from localhost (as You can see in my
config, sieve only listens to localhost) since if there will ever be a
websieve or the like, it's going to run on the same machine.

You are absolutely right, I do not get any sasl-methods and/or STARTTLS.
I did use to get STARTTLS until I disabled it via the certificate-line.

This just brings up more questions - how to I even enable sasl for sieve?

Or is it enabled but not announced?

 From configuring postfix I know You can configure the MTA to only 
announce SASL after STARTTLS but this probably isn't the case here?

If I can provide any more information, please let me know.
