Maybe it should be toggled by a variable in /etc/default/postfix?

While on the subject, instead of having Postfix deliver directly to
Maildir,  was using the Dovecot's deliver command considered?  Doing so
would allow the use of Sieve script to get the elusive server-side
filtering functionality without resorting to procmail.  On my own mail
server, I use the following in

    mailbox_command = /usr/lib/dovecot/deliver -m "${EXTENSION}"
