I wouldn't even use rc.postfix ... rc.sendmail can handle it.

# Start sendmail:
sendmail_start() {
  if [ -x /usr/sbin/sendmail ]; then
    echo "Starting sendmail MTA daemon:  /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-mta -bd -q25m"
    /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-mta -bd -q25m
    echo "Starting sendmail MSP queue runner:  /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q25m"
    /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q25m

The "-bd" in all of that is the only part that is not ignored.
That runs "postfix start".  The second command is entirely no-op.
