Yeah, it’s intentional, the idea is that the RFR messages will be sent from the email address. However, this domain is still waiting for proper MX record configuration, which causes many receiving mail servers to reject such mails. So as a temporary measure, the sender domain is rewritten as just before the email is sent.
