Yes, due to the "mynetworks" setting.

And in another message you mention that:

That's what I thought. Postfix is seeing the email coming on an internal
interface, and it is configured to trust everything coming on that
interface. You could remove the interface from the "mynetwork"
setting, but then, of course, all your intranet would be untrusted -
perhaps not a bad thing in your case, I think you said something about a
Exchange server behind.

Or you could give it another ip, perhaps a "real" one.
