I would not call that a "fix".
Forwarding mail from server scripts often results in messages
transferred with an empty MAIL FROM, RFCs notwithstanding.
Forwarders are unrelated to RFC 3834 "auto-replies" by mailbots,
Some even hypothesize a BCP candidature for such "modernism"...
I have never heard of that idea, and don't think that it is good,
but of course adding "or BCP" to "standards-track" would be okay
