I have no idea what it is doing, but it is NOT done by the postfix port
itself. Note that I updated postfix using the port last week:
# ls -lrt /opt/local/etc/postfix/aliases*

-rw-r--r-- 1 root admin 16384 Oct 6 2018

It is not done by the postfix port or by MacPorts inherently.

That seems most likely. I also updated the dovecot port last week and it
did not touch any config files. I've never had a need for the
'mail-server' meta-port, so I don't use it.
