P.S.  Whoever is curious on what I'm talking about can try a session
like below, and see the From: field of the message delivered to you.
(The same phenomenon happens to To: and Cc: fields, of course, but you
cannot test it without bothering the real server at caml.inria.fr.:-)

The result is "From: nosuchuser@brion.inria.fr" in all sendmail
                                ^^^^^
installations that I have access to.  One can also try:

> grep DontExpandCnames /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
O DontExpandCnames=False
