Funny... that's how it works on my system here.... In fact I had a massive
error problem that was caused entirely by sendmail calling the milter when
run as a command-line mailer, the milter crashing due to local users calling
sendmail directly to send mail (both from command line and otherwise), hence
the milter was not receiving a local part for the users domain... something
which got fixed rather quickly as the milter kept crashing because of it....

Not all systems work the "documented" method - my mail server (currently)
runs RH7.3, as we needed to install directly to software raid, and it was
the latest RH version that we could even consider using in a production
server.   Eventually we intend to move the mail server over to a Debian box
running Debian stable (whichever that is at the time), and at that point we
expect things to follow the documentation - but not until then...
