Question about login_log_format_elements in a proxy environment

I have a Dovecot proxy setup with several proxy machines (currently 
running in front of the real Dovecot servers ( 
storing the mailboxes. "doveconf -a | egrep lip" returns:
login_log_format_elements = user=<%u> method=%m rip=%r lip=%l mpid=%e %c 

In the real server maillog I'm expecting to have "lip" replaced with the 
IP address of the proxy. It works as expected for imap-login processes, 
however for pop3-login processes I still see the real server IP instead 
of the proxy IP. Ideas?
