AFAIK exim generates a bounce to test the address, and for that I'm
getting a reject saying that the user is unknown for the VERP address.

Aug 26 04:02:05 hostname exim[70819]: H=mx1.hub.org
[200.46.208.106] sender verify fail for <pgsql-announce-owner+M1580=phoemix=harmless(dot)hu(at)postgresql(dot)org>: response
to "RCPT
TO:<pgsql-announce-owner+M1580=phoemix=harmless(dot)hu(at)postgresql(dot)org>"
from mx1.hub.org [200.46.208.106] was: 550 5.1.1
<pgsql-announce-owner+M1580=phoemix=harmless(dot)hu(at)postgresql(dot)org>:
