Although I was testing the DMARC Munge from functionality on a test list, the problem with the Reply-to header was occurring on all my lists.  None of the lists had the DMARC munge settings enabled.

I was looking at the raw header from tbird.

For the list where I first noticed the problem:
from_is_list = No
anonymous_list = No
first_strip_reply_to = yes

These are the settings this list has had for years.

Unfortunately I no longer have the messages when I noticed the problem ... I will have to try and recreate the problem in a sandbox.

You can see the headers from a test message I sent when tracking down the problem here: http://code.midrange.com/ab8c5f0363.html
