The problem is how auth_username_format works. It permanently changes %u
(and as a result %n and %d too) to the newly specified format, which in
your case drops the domain.
Perhaps it should only change %u temporarily for the passdb and userdb
lookups, but still not touch the username sent to mail process. Except
some people probably want it to change it permanently, so I can't just
change the behavior without possibly breaking existing setups. And I
don't really like adding a new auth_username_lookup_format setting
either, there are too many settings already. Hmm.
