Sorry, what i said before was not true.

In emacs-27, M-x mail is working just fine (i.e., the correct From:
address is seen by postfix).  The problem only happens when using
message-mode (either via Gnus or simply via M-x message-mail) to send
the email.  Setting message-sendmail-f-is-evil back to nil fixes it for
me too.  And setting it to t in emacs-26 reproduces the (to me) bad
behaviour too.
