What do the "Received:" headers of the message look like (how did it end

I wonder if this isn't some bizarre MTA (Mail Transfer Agent
[sendmail/postfix]) misconfiguration.  Have you verified that your IMAP
server can correctly send mail?  SIEVE sends mail using the executable
specified via the "sendmail" directive of the imapd.conf file.

No, but I've never had any sieve/vacation issues on any of the various
Cyrus systems I've installed over the last decade.
