So what will be the new behaviour? I read through the release notes but
could not find anything applying to this particular issue.

I just noticed that stripping reply-to headers was enabled on the list
in question, and that this is not the default (as I originally thought
it was - I wasn't the one who initially set up these lists). Stripping
happens after From munging, so this explains my issue. After disabling
stripping, the original sender remains in the Reply-To.
I would however argue that this is not expected - in particular, the
text says that the Reply-To header of the "original message" is removed,
which I read as: First the header is removed, then all the other
processing is done.

Kind regards
