When dovecot writes these log messages, do you get any messages in
audit.log? If so, please paste them. (Ideally test with "a" in the rule.)

No, no messages appear in audit.log.

Oh, sorry -- I had forgotten to re-enable logging in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.
I re-enabled it and tried again just now. Here's what gets written to
audit.log when starting dovecot:

type=AVC msg=audit(1524165468.008:2651): apparmor="ALLOWED" operation="open"
profile="/usr/sbin/dovecot" name="/var/log/dovecot.log" pid=8197 comm="dovecot"
requested_mask="c" denied_mask="c" fsuid=0 ouid=0
type=AVC msg=audit(1524165468.008:2652): apparmor="ALLOWED"
operation="file_perm" profile="/usr/sbin/dovecot" name="/var/log/dovecot.log"
pid=8197 comm="dovecot" requested_mask="w" denied_mask="w" fsuid=0 ouid=0
type=AVC msg=audit(1524165468.016:2653): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open"
