Yeah, it’s intentional, the idea is that the RFR messages will be sent from the @openjdk.org 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 @openjdk.java.net just before the email is sent.
