This is e-mail, not some web stuff.
The contact information for various purposes are defined in the
RFCs (e.g., postmaster for e-mail).

As well, with everyone hiding 'whois', and so many companies that don't have a proper postmaster, or even check the postmaster mailbox, it does make sense, which is why it was recommended as a best practice.
